Storytelling: Effects of Planning, Repetition and Context

  • William Essig

Summary

This chapter reports the results of a small-scale research project in a womens’ college in Japan in which I explored the effects of planning time and a change of context (private vs. public display) on the repetition of oral narratives by my students. Analysis of the transcripts suggest that planning time and a change of context to public display have beneficial effects on both the fluency and accuracy of the students’ retellings of their stories.
