Event description

Description

In this workshop, teachers learn ways to help students understand story structure by developing personal narratives with a clear beginning, middle, and end, and using storytelling techniques to tell stories more vividly. Participants explore a process for helping students choose appropriate topics, visualize the story, and use simple sketching and writing to organize and capture their own and others’ stories. Teachers also learn how to “coach” students to project their voices and use appropriate posture and gestures for more effective storytelling.

This workshop is most valuable for teachers of grades 3-7.

This workshop is presented by JUDY THIBAULT KLEVINS, a drama educator who has directed hundreds of plays and projects with people who range in age from seven to ninety-two. A theater and language arts teacher in Arlington, Virginia, Ms. Klevins’ high school booster club named her “Coach of the Year,” and she continues to serve as a coach/mentor to teachers as they introduce drama strategies in their classroom. Ms. Klevins also served as Arlington’s Arts Education Specialist. A presenter at international and national conventions, she has created, directed, and performed readings at the U.S. Senate Office Building, the National Institutes of Health, and other venues, and created Swapping Stories©, a unique intergenerational/intercultural drama project.

Attending this workshop provides 3 contact hours towards CEU credit, and dinner is included. For more information, call 419-522-2726 ext. 251 or email maddie@mansfieldtickets.com.
