When Krieger Schechter Day School teacher Steve Gordon teaches a unit on the Civil War, he becomes a soldier on the Gettysburg battlefield. When Michelle Frisby teaches A House on Mango Street her students perform each vignette in their own words. When Debbie Steinig teaches about three dimensional space, she transforms the book Flatland into a story that leaps off the page and into her students' minds.

Can you become a lively storyteller like these educators? Yes! Storytelling coach Jennifer Rudick Zunikoff will guide you through the steps necessary to transform your passion for what you teach into a concrete story that will engage you and your students. KSDS teachers will share the stories they have successfully performed for their classes, and they will tell you how they helped their students share engaging stories of their own.

Jennifer will model exercises you can use to spark student excitement for your subject and have your students telling stories too. Prepare for an emotional and active day! You will have the opportunity to listen, learn, and become a teacher who uses storytelling to create a creative classroom where students are willing to take risks to connect to you, to each other, and to the curriculum. This program is designed for teachers of 4th grade and up.
Lunch is included.
