Dott.ssa Manuela Calzini Gli insegnanti di Lingua Inglese sono invitati. The Magic Power of Storytelling
“There have been great societies that did not use the wheel,
but there have been no societies that did not tell stories.”
(Ursula Le Guin) This is an interactive workshop designed to introduce you to the power of storytelling and to provide you with some ideas, strategies and materials intended to help you motivate your pupils to be creative, enjoy themselves and buildup their fluency in all four skills. The objective is to contextualize learning a foreign language through the magical world of stories.
During the workshop I will refer to:
The pioneering work of Dorothy Heathcote
The widely influential work of Viola Spolin
The rich support provided by Andrew Wright
The Narrative Format Approach
My own work with children, teenagers and teachers around Europe.
