Do you ever wonder why many of the best teachers tell stories?
Think back to your school days where a math question was presented in the form of a short scenario. Do you remember how Sally had 10 watermelons and gave 5 to Jerry, leaving her with only 5 watermelons for herself, wondering why she might have done that or what was going on with Sally and Jerry? Or learning about the life cycle of a frog by following a tadpole named Fred on his growth into an adult frog and even to this day, hoping that Fred or his progeny are living a long and happy life. Think back to all the times you’ve had to learn anything new. How was the information presented to you?
