Tom’s enthusiasm for using personal stories and anecdotes (a limitless resource) has grown out of his own classroom experiences over the years. In this presentation, he illustrates various storytelling activities and draws on the work of Merrill Swain (Output Hypothesis) to link storytelling practice to Second Language Acquisition theory.  

Rather than summarise Tom’s presentation here, I’m sure you’ll find it more interesting to go to a mini version, available on http://allatc.wordpress.com (clicking on the link after the entry entitled Storytelling at TESOL Spain 2013). Apart from being able to listen to Tom directly, you’ll also have the opportunity to send him feedback on his first experiment with PresentMe.
