Through story, we communicate our successes, our challenges, our questions, and our ideas of how the world works--from our early years through our adult lives. How can the best books for young children, and children's own emergent storytelling, build the classroom community? What role can the exploration of other's experiences, through story, play in building the 21st century skills of equity, empathy, creative and critical thinking, and collaborative problem-solving? Participants will be introduced to authors and literature they will want to introduce to their classroom community and learn strategies for sharing these published works and also those of their classes' own emerging writers.

  • Courses must be taken within the first 120 days after purchase. This includes in-person skills assessment if you have purchased a blended course. After 120 days, courses will expire. No extensions will be given.
