Storytelling & Mathematics: A Perfect Match

Saturday, March 24 4:00 PM - 5:15 PM

Presenter: Michael J. Dorer

Target Audience: Elementary I, Elementary II

Enhance your presentation of Math—and build excitement, motivation, and understanding—by making storytelling a part of it! In this workshop, learn why, when, and how to use stories in Math work, and listen to engaging arithmetic and geometry stories that exemplify the power of this approach. Discover how to tell stories using the “LIBRA” method (listen, illustrate, block, rehearse, take action), and come away ready to tell these stories to your students right away.
