Storytelling Classroom: Applications Across the Curriculum

Teaching Artist: Sherry Norfolk

This workshops provides a hands-on introduction to the art and its magical ability to engage students in learning. By its nature, storytelling is experiential, engaging, and involving. More classroom teachers are discovering what storytellers have always known: that storytelling can be the springboard for curriculum integration because one need not be limited to the confines of the language arts. Activities from storytelling can span and thereby aid in integrating the entire curriculum. Storytelling nurtures both the imaginative and analytical sides of a student’s brain. “The Storytelling Classroom” is an introduction to this art form and its interdisciplinary, cross-curricular applications. 10 contact hours for Grades K-5 Teachers.
