Learn how to discover the use of story games when working with youth to extend the storytelling, reading, writing and listening experience.
Playing with stories builds communication skills and extends the storytelling and story reading experience. In the games introduced during the workshop, participants will find activities for the perennially shy or introverted, as well as outgoing students and youth.
Storytelling is an excellent pre-writing tool; while listening to stories and playing story games, students and youth learn story structure, sequencing, event prediction and expanded vocabulary. Gesture, voice and movement underline the meaning in the stories. Storytelling is accessible to visual, aural and kinesthetic learners.
Priscilla will also discuss how to adapt these games to the audience or class that you are working with.
