Is storytelling an effective means for identifying and understanding the language of emotion and behaviour? An intervention
The present article explores whether storytelling can be used to develop insights into the manner in which young children of 3-6 years identify and understand the language of emotion and behaviour. Following the preliminary analysis, it can be revealed that storytelling can modify the behaviour of children in an appropriate way. The present study seeks to investigate the extent to which the storytelling can encourage young children to share emotions and experiences, and learn from one another. My research analysis involved audio and video recording of storytelling and discussions, held over a period of 1 year. The investigator used purposive sampling in order to select a sample of four children coming from mixed ethnicity, gender, ability, and socio-economic background. The results confirmed that storytelling encourages children in sharing feelings, emotions and experiences, and in general it supports young children outside formal learning settings.
