11 Three Go-To Guided Oral Input Strategies for Narration

Make your storytelling - online or in-person - a LOT less stressful with these three go-to strategies that give you a solid structure to work with, so you can relax and not have to be the creative element in the room.

Let the structure of Story Mountains and Story Maps and Timelines help you retell a story that already exists (a personal story from your life, or a staff member's life, or a historical figure's life, or a student's life, or a cultural tale, or a story from literature...any story that exists, really) with so little stress, you would swear you were now teaching in Teacher Shangri-La. You can use these strategies in-person or with your QuaranTeens. (You know, your stir-crazy teens you are teaching or supporting at home thanks to an invisible little pathogen that has brought the world to a halt...)

Learn about Narrative Input Charts and get some examples of super-cute stories to tell your class TOMORROW, whether in person or online. They are SO easy to tell, and such low stress.

And finally, learn about Visual Stories, which are a way that anyone can draw. I will even show you a cool hack using the free site, Canva, that will let you "cheat" and make little stories like this. (You can see the PowerPoint here too)

After the live event is over, and if you register after the live event, you will receive a link to a recording of the webinar, and then a couple of days later, you will receive an email with a coupon to join the mini-course with the resources from this webinar, plus a lesson on the Daily Instructional Framework, and a downloadable video and audio file of the webinar, so you can save it to your computer or device and watch or listen anytime, even if your family is hogging all the bandwidth in town streaming Netflix, watching crazy cat videos, and playing video games!

Each one comes with a different hot-off-the-press really cool-looking PDF from the latest set of Stepping Stones documents.
