Cliffhangers - A sense of wonder and motivation in the classroom

My degree project is about applying narrative theory to the media classroom. Can a teacher create wonder and curiosity in their classroom by using classic storytelling techniques? Compelling stories have been used throughout history, and with today’s media climate and the endless amount of entertainment that surrounds us, they can make us feel, fantasise, become inspired, and forget about time and space. Imagine applying that sense of wonder to the classroom! This study focuses on cliffhangers as a motivational tool in the classroom and examines the teachers’ point of view on the subject of cliffhangers and the use of narrative techniques in their classrooms.
