From ancient times to now, stories have been a means to share our experiences and develop our communities. But, how can we bring storytelling into the language classroom? This presentation will describe how the textbook, Discover Conversation, can help learners to share and react to each other’s stories. It will demonstrate ways to scaffold the learning process so that learners can be exposed to and engage in more authentic L2 storytelling.
