Event description

Description

"If you've read a great story from a book, you will probably remember the story, characters and the location in which it was set. If you hear a story read live, you become part of the experience."




Led by one of the 500 Most Influential People in Britain (Debrett's 2015), author, blogger and one of the most followed educators on Twitter in the UK, Ross Morrison McGill (aka @TeacherToolkit) will provide attendees with practical and engaging advice for teachers who are looking to 'develop the art of storytelling' in class with their students; to develop the use of literacy techniques in their personal lives for interviews, assemblies or when speaking in front of peers.

and Adisa, who exploded onto the spoken word scene in the summer of 1993. His mango-flavoured metaphors and his larva-fuelled performances soon became legendary on the London performance poetry circuit. @AdisaPoet is a published poet who has worked inside the walls of education as an artistic educator for over twenty years. He specialises in creative writing workshops aimed at helping students find and share their unique voice through live performance.




Objective:

The Power of Storytelling is aimed at people working in public speaking scenarios - for teachers, school leaders and for those who find themselves speaking in front of a large audience.

Each strategy will be designed to help individuals develop an understanding of how to build a story for audience engagement; how to use personal anecdotes in public speaking / classroom / assemblies / conferences which will lead to better participation. Delegates will trial techniques for professional use to nurture confidence and motivation for those challenging situations e.g. public speaking, interviews.

Those attending should bring their own notepad and/or laptop and be prepared to share anecdotes and participate with others in the gorup.



Attendees on the day will:

  • Learn more about the power of storytelling (in the classroom, assembly, interview)
  • Using storytelling for your own purpose e.g. interviews, assemblies, classroom, public speaking
  • How does application of storytelling link to teaching and learning strategies
  • Use stories to build teamwork in a learning environment; structure for success.
  • How to use techniques informed and applied from psychology can help you to tell better stories
  • What does research say about storytelling and its links to literacy
  • How to add flesh to the classic ingredients of a story
  • Build your own story and share it with others on the day ...



To tell a story is to remove the listener from their perceived reality and present a new world. A world where the listener is intrigued surprised and moved as the images unfold in their minds. To start a journey with someone, you need to feel you can trust the storyteller with your imagination and your emotions. Stories offer a great teaching model, where true magic lies not in the words that adorn the white page, but in the blank space between the lines. These techniques will improve auidence engagement in public speaking situations.
