Well, I returned to rain and much cooler weather, but still have wonderful, warm memories of meeting friends from Princeton to hold on to! Thank you, Alexis, for creating this blog and ensuring that we keep the lines of communication open (especially for those of us who are far away from New Jersey!) I begin teaching at the university this Monday for a MAT Elementary class on Brain Theory and am excited to share how story can be a powerful teaching tool. I plan to to tell a story and am thankful to Susan and the group for providing such a safe and supportive environment to share our stories and give us that extra boost of confidence.
I found a great resource to use in the classroom to help children tell stories and, along with all of the wonderful techniques that Susan shared, I plan to use it to begin the year to teach a Storytelling unit. Here's the link: Children Tell Stories: Teaching and Using Storytelling in the Classroom
Take care friends,
