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.
For three decades, Mr. Weiss has traveled the world telling stories and presenting workshops on storytelling, writing, and teaching. His connection to audiences is magnetic and interactive, and he helps teachers masterfully tell stories, and improve their ability to read stories aloud, in ways that help students appreciate classics and world history.
Educators in all fields and of all grades are invited to participate in this valuable workshop.
