STORYTELLING LAB is a training course dedicated to storytelling as an educational tool at school. Teachers will learn how to organize storytelling activities with the classroom, to help children develop cognitive, linguistic and social skills and improve climate and relationships of the learning group. The use of different expressive languages and tools (illustrated books without words, tactile books, small theaters of paper and cardboard, boxes, body, voice) makes these storytelling activities suitable for children coming from migrant backgrounds or with difficulties in learning.
WHAT WILL WE LEARN?
-Why is it important to tell stories at school? What skills do children acquire through storytelling?
-Which non-formal education activities are more useful for activating the participation of children and allowing them to develop autonomy and critical thinking?
-Stories to improve the climate among the group: how to build rituals with children to improve class-room climate, teach active listening, improve literacy, self-esteem and quality of relationships.
-Using silent books for working with children with migrant backgrounds and refugees.
– How to involve families (especially those with migrant or poor cultural resources) and the local community.
– how to build an intercultural library at school and collect fairy tales from the countries of origin of migrant families.
-Tools for telling stories: oral narration and fairy tales; illustrated cards; silent books (wordless picture books); narration with everyday objects; mini-portable theaters; tactile story boxes; tactile books; pop-up; books; flip-book; collective writing; creative cards and tools to invent stories.
