Event Details

Synopsis

Storytelling has proved to be an effective tool for learning over centuries. Storytelling is a non-threatening way for teenagers to learn life-skills and values, engaging both their hearts and minds.
This experiential and interactive storytelling skills workshop is designed especially for upper primary / secondary school teachers, storytellers and parents of pre-teens (ages 11- 12) and teenagers (ages 13 – 19). The stories used in this workshop will be on the themes of facing fear, kindness, empathy, being open minded, self-acceptance etc.

Key takeaways from the workshop include-
1. Simple storytelling strategies for teenagers
2. Using stories in the classroom and education about values
3. How to adapt children’s stories for teenagers
