In this hands-on workshop teachers develop their ability to tell stories more effectively through the expressive use of voice and movements.

Good storytellers capture attention. They help listeners visualize characters, understand dialogue, and connect to emotional details that bring a story to life. Workshop participants’ increased skills will help develop students’ story comprehension as teachers add character gestures, create lines of dialogue, and describe sensory details. As evidenced in classroom after classroom, these are powerful strategies for developing literacy skills for students who range from advanced to not yet fluent readers.

This workshop is ideal for Reading Specialists, Elementary, English Language Learners, and Special Education teachers.
