THINKING ABOUT MYSELF AND MY PERSONAL STORIES
THINKING ABOUT OTHERS
‘Parents who tell and read stories in a rich and responsive way have young children with advanced language, memory, and emotional development, and adolescents with a healthy sense of identity and well-being’
(in Reese 2013)
Autobiographical memory impacts upon our children’s long term future success academically and emotionally.
We hear a lot about Theory of Mind and about how children are struggling. How can we move beyond the Sally Anne test and the known difficulties our children have – we need ideas and strategies to put into practise.
This course aims to pull together the themes in recent research which look at how children develop their autobiographical memories and the stories they tell themselves and which are told by others. The impact upon identity, people reading, inferencing, predicting and social interactions will be drawn out. The potential to support and underpin academic progress in literacy will be discussed and applied. This is a practical course with theory at its core.
