ETJ East Tokyo:

Using Picture Books and Storytelling to Teach All Age Groups

Date: Sunday, May 26th, 2013 Time: 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Patricia Daly Oe

In this workshop author, illustrator and teacher Patricia Daly Oe will demonstrate how to use picture books and storytelling to teach English. She will present a number of stories and give some ideas about how to develop creative activities based on the stories, including games, songs, movement, speaking and writing exercises, for all age groups -- from small children to teenagers and adults. The first part of the workshop will focus on picture books and the second part on storytelling techniques, particularly on the telling of humorous stories. Participants will enjoy developing and presenting their own stories (and listening to othersf stories) as part of the workshop.

Ms. Patricia Daly Oe has been writing and illustrating children's stories for her own classes, narration events and storytelling sessions for many years. She has had a number of picture books published including Blue Mouse, Yellow Mouse and Where Are My Stripes? (RIC Publications, 2006). Her latest book, Lily and the Moon, co-authored with Mari Nakamura, will be published in May 2013 by ELF Learning. Patricia enjoys encouraging children, teenagers and adults to develop their imagination and creativity. She runs her own private classes as well as visiting schools, book shops and community halls to teach, narrate stories and stage events. Visit her website and blog for more information.
