Storytelling is a life skill

Once more, teachers urge to place more focus on the development of creativity in children. Rather than forcing them to know each and every grammatical construction, it is important for children to be able to tell stories. Storytelling is an essential life skill that enables politicians to gain votes for them and salesmen to sell products. Successful people are those who are able to build a myth around themselves. The opposing view, however, criticizes that creativity and imagination cannot be tested. This belief is not based on actual facts, since teachers highlight that a good story can definitely be assessed and story telling can be taught.
