Princesses, Dragons and Helicopter Stories
Artistic Director, Trisha Lee's much anticipated book is out now. The book outlines the ground-breaking approach to teaching and learning for early years and key stage 1, providing a step-by-step guide for educators looking to implement this innovative method of storytelling: Helicopter Stories.
A practical support guide filled with a wide range of topics, examples and anecdotes, Princesses, Dragons and Helicopter Stories covers every aspect of Paley’s Helicopter Stories and explains how to introduce the approach to the classroom.
"Trisha Lee plays a magical role in classrooms all over the world," Vivian Gussin Paley writes in the forward. "With only pen, paper and masking tape in hand, she can turn any group of children into an acting company.
“The children become storytellers, actors, and an audience, and their teachers emerge as scribes, narrators and stage managers: the classroom is transformed into the make-believe worlds that children love best."
Princesses, Dragons and Helicopter Stories was shortlisted for the UKLA Academic Book of the Year award 2016
