Strengths and Disadvantages of Storytelling Method

D. Strengths and Disadvantages of Storytelling Method

In the teaching and learning process, stories are one of the best methods. With the storytelling method, it is hoped that it can touch the soul if it is based on deep sincerity. The storytelling method is very commonly used in early childhood learning, especially in conveying messages and values ​​to be internalized to children.

The advantages of the storytelling method are:
  • Stories can activate and excite students. Because students will always reflect on the meaning and follow various story situations, so students are influenced by the characters and topics of the story.
  • Directing all emotions so that they unite in one conclusion that occurs at the end of the story.
  • The story is always captivating, because it invites to follow the events and reflect on their meaning.
  • Can affect emotions. Such as fear, feelings of being watched, willing, happy, reluctant, or hate so that it flares up in the folds of the story.
The disadvantages of the storytelling method are:
  • Understanding students will be difficult when the story has been accumulated by other problems.
  • Monolong and can saturate students.
  • Often there is a misalignment of the content of the story with the intended context so that the achievement of goals is difficult to realize.
From the description above, it can be concluded that storytelling is the delivery of subject matter by telling chronologically the occurrence of an event, either true or purely fictitious. This storytelling method in religious education uses the paradigm of the Qur'an and the Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad, so that it has a valid story substance without doubting its validity. But sometimes the validity of a story collides with the Human Resources (HR) who convey the story itself so that there are many weaknesses.
