Evening Teacher Workshop on Classroom Storytelling 14 November 2018
Spoken Word Alive: Putting Your Best Voice Forward in Classroom Storytelling with Young Children Storytelling is a powerful way to bring circle-time (and other parts of the school day) to life. Teachers can use characters to address difficult behaviors without singling children out as well as illustrate how life challenges can be overcome through the lessons from fables and beloved legends. However, teachers are often hesitant when it comes to changing their voices, "coloring them", and bringing characters to life through pitch and phonation. Leeny will offer participants keys to healthy phonation, effective pitch, and ways to work with one's "level of excitement" when projecting one's voice during storytelling. Following this workshop, early childhood teachers will feel more empowered to incorporate storytelling in their work with young children. About our Presenter: Leeny Del Seamonds.
