What's The Story - Oral & Written Narratives
DATE: Wednesday, 26 January
TIME: 7pm - 8.30pm
As the proverb goes:
“those who tell the stories rule the world”
Storytelling and narratives are a foundation for literacy and academics. At a deeper level, it is how we share stories and build connection. From weekend news to writing a novel, stories of all depths and lengths make up our stories. However, for some pupils telling you what just happened on the yard is a trial, and re-telling a storybook is immensely difficult.
Delivered by a Speech and Language Therapist, this webinar will introduce you to the foundation skills of narrative development. You will leave the webinar with strategies you can introduce straight away, without funding or purchasing ‘kit’.
The webinar is suitable for SNAs, class teachers, learning support teachers who work with primary school (Junior Infants up to 6th Class).
