THAT’S NOT FAIR! Using Storytelling in the Classroom to Encourage Tolerance, Critical Thinking, Empathy and Good Decisions
Teachers have way too much to do and way too little time, so using stories to teach is simply a no brainer. This workshop will explore character development through storytelling. Plenty of tools available, including dilemma tales, riddling, heroic acts and actors, tales from other cultures and everyday experience. You’ll have fun and leave with a pocket full of tales and techniques to use.
