Tales In and Out of School:
Children, Imagination, and Learning
It is with great anticipation and excitement that the craft of storytelling inside and outside the classroom will be available for teachers, librarians, administrators, and novice to veteran storytellers alike. Our San Antonio Storytelling Association has worked hard to bring you the best of the best presenters this summer, right here in beautiful San Antonio, TX. If you are an educator, please share this information with your district's Central Office so news of our conference will spread quickly. We have workshops involving science and storytelling, music and storytelling in the classrooms, origami and storytelling, higher order thinking and storytelling, and more! What a great way to begin your summer but with stories galore.
I'm especially excited about Saturday morning of this conference because we'll feature a Youth Storytelling Showcase: Story Behind the Story: Nurturing the Next Generation. I'll have a few of my students along with a few of Mary Ann Blue's students tell their tales to share the power of story within youth. Our keynote speaker and storyteller, Megan Hicks will be our emcee allowing for a question/answer time for not only the audience but for Mary Ann and I to speak on allowing time for youth storytelling to occur in the school setting and what it takes to begin this wonderful venture.
Hope to see you there. If you have any questions, please leave a reply or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
