Principle Based Learning Likes My Story!

Principle Based Learning selected my story, There Was a Time, to inspire families to take time to  look for those deeper feelings that come when connecting with family on any level. Coming from this organization I consider that quite the powerful complement! 
But it works out to be a nice gift for you too! Click on their link:

What is Principle Based Learning (PBL)?
While researching the best sources about what makes for great teaching and learning, the founders of PBL searched for common threads among the writings of great thinkers, mentors and authors such as Charlotte Mason, Maria Montessori, John Holt, Stephen R. Covey, John Taylor-Gatto, Oliver and Rachel DeMille and others. They looked for the themes that were repeated over and over throughout this literature and ended up with 7 Principles. As people learn, apply and teach these principles for themselves, great learning will manifest. They have adopted storytelling as an educational tool in their programs and started a family storytelling club.

I love what they had to say about storytelling on their blog:

Presents a CD Release Party for Teresa Clark. 
I will be telling all of the stories from my new CD, "Wears Like Iron." 
This event is free, but reservations are required: 200-4473. 

"In her sweet, clear voice, Teresa Clark blends folktale and personal story, generations of family wisdom and experience, and the wonder of rare insights that seem to come only after we have lived long enough for our memories to span the decades."

"Teresa Clark delivers! Her easy telling style calls us home, back to the people and places that give us the gentle strength and life lessons we so dearly need. These are stories that can be listened to over and over again whether you are by yourself or with a loved one."
