Teaching Writing Through Storytelling
For over a decade, Victoria-based charity Story Studio (storystudio.ca) has run story-making workshops for thousands of youth. Our model encourages youth to experience literacy as something they can participate in, not just observe. More importantly, it enables youth to experience the thrill of creation by telling their own stories. In this workshop, we'll discuss tips and tactics that can be used by literacy practitioners to help turn kids into powerful storytellers!
