GIORDANO, Alessandra. The art of storytelling and the tale of oral tradition in educational practices. Constr. psicopedag. [online]. 2013, vol.21, n.22, pp. 26-45. ISSN 1415-6954.

This work is the result of research that began with studies of specialization in children's literature "on the stories that count for children" at the University of São Paulo (USP), maybe because I myself be a storyteller. In this condition, as far as I can remember, I was always in the atmosphere I experienced, since childhood, when people gathered around the stories of counter. Convinced of the importance of telling and listening to stories from my own experience, I realised a deepening in the studies for a master's degree in Sciences of religions at PUC-SP, whose dissertation focussed on: "storytelling as a way for the sacred" that culminated in the defense of the doctoral thesis in Social Psychology from PUC-SP, where we work the identity of contemporary storytellers and the social and cultural impact of the importance of the tell and listen to stories in modern cities. The methodology employed was the tale of oral tradition. From this experience, in this text, we will draw up reports of our understanding and contribution of traditional tales to modern societies and their employment in education and related fields.
