In this certificate course of five sessions, participants will develop skills in learning and telling stories both
at home and in the classroom.
1.Learning storytelling skills.
2.Discovering what is essential and meaningful in a 2nd and 4th Grade story.
3.Embracing high quality podcasts as a resource tool.
The participants will choose from a selection of 2nd grade ‘Animal Fables’ or from stories that
arise from 4th grade in ‘Human and Animal’ Lessons.
Podcasts can be an excellent resource for teachers as they move into the higher grades.
Grade 4 stories will be developed by listening to episodes from the podcast ‘The Wild’ by Chris Morgan.
Participants will work intensely in small pods and share their stories with the team.
What stories are appropriate for these two different age groups and why?
How do we combine the elements of wonder and natural phenomena through our stories in our Human and Animal Lessons?
