Power of Narrative

A resource to give young people the knowledge and understanding of how stories and narratives shape our lives, and to give them the skills and confidence to respond critically to narratives and narrators who seek to divide us.

In this module we use the terms narratives and stories interchangeably. In both we refer to the tales that we tell ourselves to make sense of the world and our place within it. These can be local folklore, ‘news’, information from the web, family tales, myths, legends, religious and cultural stories, what we hear from leaders and politicians.

In this module students will explore how they come across these narratives and stories, and the impact that these have on themselves and their communities.
