Part#1 - Dig Deeper Presentations

Dig a little deeper into an aspect of storytelling that you find especially interesting or useful. This can be related to something we covered in class or something we didn’t get around to from the Resource page.

Possible Topics include;

  • Historical Overview
  • Oral Delivery Skills, Verbal and Nonverbal Techniques
  • Storybooks: Resources and Reviews
  • Storytelling activities for EFL Classrooms
  • Storytelling and Language Skills
  • Digital Storytelling
  • Cultural and Gender Dimensions of Storytelling
  • Storytelling in Gameplay
  • Music in Storytelling
  • Gender and Cultural Issues in Storytelling
  • Anything else related to storytelling that you’d like to explore

Part#2 - Reflection Application Paper

  • What (if anything) did you find useful during this course? 
  • What role might storytelling play in your future teaching and what (if anything) will you apply from this course?
  • Which aspects of storytelling are you interested in learning more about in the future?
