Veteran teacher, storyteller and author Marni Gillard offers practical strategies for inviting learners of every age into the power of deep listening through story-sharing, poem-telling, and readers theater.
You’ll learn hands-on ways to help children step into literature, experience memories as dialogue-filled scenes and learn to coach each other skillfully on oral and written performance. Oral language and listening pave the road into literacy. Marni shows the way.
