Because idea generation is so hard for so many, this workshop is geared toward helping kids develop a long list of possible stories. Working together, we will put together lists of possible stories, then students will have the chance to write a quick “flash fiction” story. Some will get to share. 45 minutes, 2 classrooms, grades 1 and up.
If you choose this program as a teacher in-service, we will explore a three different versions of idea generation, as well as discuss how we can help students to see themselves as storytellers, and ways to work storytelling into the classroom every day.
