Abstract

Many students in elementary and high school struggle to understand and express at the narrative language level. This may include personal narratives, retells, story generation/comprehension or nonfiction. Students have to gather information, organize it, make connections and express themselves. This allows students to build a deeper connection between their understanding and what they read by growing their knowledge of the story grammar schema. 

Learning objectives:

  1. Demonstrate an understanding of story grammar schema.
  2. Create and implement narrative therapy approaches.
  3. Create visual supports for narrative intervention.
     

This webinar is eligible for SAC CEEs (Category A).
