Jim Weiss Online Workshop for Teachers
Thursday, October 8, 2020, 5:00-7:00 MDT, Via Zoom

Montana teachers can earn two continuing education units from OPI.

Brain research and storytelling: the learning value of storytelling
Every story is a teaching story. Stories can teach ethics intrinsically. Mr Weiss will teach how to draw ethical understanding from students. Material will be from all four historical eras–Ancient, Roman, Medieval, Modern. Mr. Weiss will illustrate how the same material can be adapted for younger and older students.
The workshop will teach the structure of stories and techniques for changing voice and character, including the two unbreakable rules of storytelling. Participants will leave the workshop with immediately useful skills and materials.
