Abstract: In this chapter, we describe the Action Telling method and how it supports young children in exploring their ideas for how to react in challenging social situations. Action Telling is an active storytelling method that focuses on children’s conceptions of their initiatives, interactions, decision-making, and the dilemmas they face in Early Childhood settings as it promotes children’s agency and meaningful problem-solving. In the Action Telling method, teachers facilitate children’s participation to bring out their ideas and describe their personal ways of solving issues in everyday social activity with peers and teachers. In this chapter, the Action Telling method practices are introduced for teachers who are interested in understanding children’s ideas and perspectives and supporting children’s participation and agency. The ways in which children’s participation enhances social and cognitive development are explored as well as children’s development of reasoning skills, logic, and reflection, which are essential for creating innovative ideas and knowledge, and in the end, new interaction.
