Group: El-A09 Name: Chung Choi Khuan No.Matrik: D042780 Title Assignment: Write a report on two english language programmes implemented in your school. Programmes: 1.Storytelling 2.Tuition Class

Programmes: 1. Storytelling

Introduction Storytelling is an effective teaching and learning activity to help improve the standard of English among pupils. The storytelling activity/competition will be carried out at school, district/division, state and national levels. Storytelling is the act of telling a story in an entertaining, impressive or dramatic way. Telling is standing or sitting and using ones voice or sign language to present a story without reading from a book. Adding feeling or emotion is probably most important. Generally we remember the feeling of the event or imagine what our characters might be felling and then adjust our delivery accordingly.

We need to adjust our delivery about: Tone of voice Loudness Rhythm Facial expression Body language Movement Hand gestures

All audiences want to able to: Hear, follow and understand a story Enjoy putting their imagination to work Have fun experience some other strong feelings

Some audiences want to: Puzzle over what a story is about Enjoy a good metaphor or other creative word plays Be empowered Be reminded of their goodness Have their beliefs acknowledged and confirmed Feel like they belong Enjoy watching an artist at work

The practice Storytelling as an activity can be shortened to: Finding stories, Learning them, Trying them out and noticing audience feedback, Responding to the feedback by reviewing your stories and your performances, and Constantly refining your skills.

How to you pick which stories to tell? Well first of all, pick a story that makes you interested and curious about how its going to end Secondly, pick one that seems to flow off the pages of the book into your speaking voice-a well rounded oral story now a hard or literary story. Thirdly, pick a story, the philosophy of which, you can agree with, can be pleased with and proud of.

A good way to acquire some new skills is by listening to other storytellers. There is something to be learnt from every performer. What are they doing well? What did the audience like? What didnt work? The other thing is to develop good relationships with other storytellers. Tell other tellers what you like about their work and theyll start telling you as well. Take chances. Be generous.
