A Workshop on Using Storytelling to Support Children’s Creative Writing

 

Sheila Wee_Kallang CC_Growing Stories Workshop 2013

Many children enjoy listening to stories, telling stories, reading stories, but too few enjoy writing them. Discover how you can harness that enthusiasm for stories and channel it into creative writing. This workshop will show how speaking, listening and reading activities can be woven into the writing process, to engage pupils in a holistic language learning environment.

The  workshop will be highly interactive, it will include  some formal presentations and  demonstrations of the techniques by the trainer and lots of participation by the attendees.
