two- or three-day workshop is designed to provide teachers with
an experiential understanding of how to facilitate the creation
of research-based collage stories that are integrated into the curriculum.
will come with a social studies or science theme in mind and supporting
resources. As teachers create their own portfolios of hand-painted
textured papers, develop a research-based story-line, and construct
collage stories, they will experience the dynamic visual and kinesthetic
thinking that occurs throughout this process.
literary elements such as sense of setting, beginning, middle, end,
and problem and solution will be addressed. Specific techniques
used to draw rich language from collage images will be presented.
Classroom mini-lessons, modeling practices, and management tips
will be woven throughout the training.
Workshops in Seabrook, NH and Chicago, Illinois.
