Map and Viewers' Guides
Story is the land where young children eat, live and breathe. It comes naturally to their brains, and when adults improve their abiility to see, think and talk about stories with young children, they improve everyone's ability to teach and learn.
The Language of Story and Play, our online video catalog, is designed to help teachers move into the Land of Story. First we give you a map to help you find your way. (To see the map, visit our sample clip page.)
The map leads subscribers through 10 series. The series are:
