Building Literacy through Oral Interpretation, Drama, and Storytelling (Grades 1-6 and 7-12)
Put literacy on stage in your classroom! This workshop will show you how to help your students develop key literacy skills through oral language, drama, and storytelling. Because students become more literate when they internalize language presented in dramatic ways, they need clear access to those strategies that will help them do so. This workshop will focus on the following: ways to read aloud to students, how to teach students how to read aloud expressively, how and why to use drama in the classroom, techniques for introducing drama, techniques for improvisation, and strategies for storytelling.
