Workshop: Story reading, Storytelling, and Story writing:
Enriching Classroom Literacy through Story
Reading vs. telling stories, Storytelling, Story Writing
Veteran Storyteller Marjorie Turner Hollman shares some simple ways to increase classroom literacy experiences through Story. This hands-on participatory workshop will make it clear that everyone—even the littlest ones—has stories to tell. We’ll learn ways to help grownups and children experience the joy of sharing stories. This workshop focuses on story reading, storytelling, and story writing, and the opportunities, and simple tools that can enhance literacy experiences in the classroom. Class time duration is negotiable.
