Speaker: Bill Harley, JALT2014 National Conference Plenary Speaker, Two-time Grammy-award winning musician, storyteller, and author
New time and location
Please note that this event is now scheduled for 6:00PM to 9:00PM in Umeda (at the YWCA Building).
The Teaching Power of Stories: A teacher is someone who gives stories to others so they can make their own. Regardless of the subject taught, story is central to how people make sense of the world and build a community with others. In this workshop, participants will look at how stories work in people's lives, what stories define their own lives, and how to use story in an educational setting. Teachers will leave with new ideas for using story in the classroom and a deeper understanding of their work as teachers. Co-sponsored in Kansai by Kobe, Kyoto, Nara, and Osaka JALT Chapters.
