Story-Based Lessons for Young Learners
In this workshop, Chiyuki Yanase will discuss a story-based approach and a number of activities – interactive shared reading, pre-story and post-story tasks as well as extensive reading program for young learners. In the first part of the workshop, she will discuss theories of story and storytelling. Participants will be invited to develop their own story-based lessons collaboratively, using a picture book in the second part. It is hoped that participants go on to use this holistic approach to literacy development and language learning in their classes to help their students bloom.
