With movies, television and video games, children are accustomed to having special effects create scenes for them. Storytelling allows children the empowerment of creating scenes for themselves. This workshop will help students enhance their reading, writing and speaking, exploring imagination to find their own, personal voice. They will have fun learning techniques of body language, facial expression, gesture, articulation, voice fluctuation and timing to create powerful and entertaining characters. They will also gain an understanding of story structure while practicing valuable listening skills that, through perception and difference, help develop vocabulary, extending these essential lessons beyond the classroom.
