This is obvious when it comes to children. However, teachers could also learn from the process of co-narration. During everyday co-narratives, teachers have the opportunity to learn about children’s world-making and lives and thereby have the opportunity to expand their understanding of children’s experiences. Efforts to listen and interest in listening to elicit children’s narratives may have the potential to broaden teachers’ knowledge of the events. Narrative activities in preschool are therefore important not only to the learning of the children but also to the learning of the teachers.

The spontaneous concepts or narrative modes of discourse are perceived as more characteristic of an everyday way of speaking and reasoning, while scientific concepts or paradigmatic modes of discourse are usually seen as typical of institutionalised discourse as appropriated in formalised schooling. The following excerpt from Luria’s (1976) classic study of, among other things, the way people’s reasoning changes when attending formalised schooling and learning to read and write will serve to illustrate the difference between the two concepts or modes.
