PERES, Silvana Goulart; NAVES, Renata Magalhães  and  BORGES, Fabrícia Teixeira. Symbolic resources and imagination in the context of storytelling. Psicol. Esc. Educ. [online]. 2018, vol.22, n.1, pp.151-161. ISSN 2175-3539.

This article aims to analyze storytelling and the interaction between teacher and children with emphasis on the use of symbolic resources - and, therefore, the expansion of the imagination through the theoretical contribution of Historical-Cultural Psychology. The qualitative research used, for the construction of the data, observations, and videotaping of episodes of storytelling in a school library of Early Childhood Education. Subsequently, microanalysis of interactive episodes has performed. The participants of the research were 18 children between 4 and 5 years old and 1 teacher of school library of Early Childhood Education. Storytelling, interactively, enhanced the use of symbolic resources when participants made references to their everyday experiences permeated by affectivity - which, consequently, triggered the expansion of imaginative processes.

Keywords : History; Imagination; children.
