It’s Kind of a College Thing: Using Storytelling to Develop Year 10 Boys’ Understanding of the History of Christ’s College

  • Boys and Stories (2018-19)

This action research project on the concept of stewardship was undertaken over several months with a group of 14-15 year old boys at Christ’s College in a Year 10 Technology class. Re-enactment of historical events, both as factual stories and as myths, were used to develop the boys’ understanding of the concept of stewardship, which forms one of the seven foundation virtues of the College. The boys undertook a range of activities, including listening to guest speakers, researching historic photographs, re-enacting historic scenes, and reflecting on their own learning and understanding of stewardship.
