Storytelling Membership for Teachers by Jamie Keddie

Storytelling Membership for Teachers

Human beings are creatures of narrative. Stories define us. Why would you leave storytelling outside your classroom?

About the membership

*** Please note that membership subscription is currently closed. If you would like me to let you know when it opens again, you can sign up for my news letter. ***

For over ten years, I have been working with teachers all over the world. And during this time, I've heard the same familiar problems:

  • How can I make my classes more engaging?
  • Where can I find exciting materials?
  • How do I motivate my students to talk?
My answer is always the same: use story.

This shouldn't surprise us. Human beings are, after all, creatures of narrative. We use stories to persuade, stories to entertain, stories to bond with each other, stories to understand the world, stories to communicate.

Story and language are inseparable. So why would you leave storytelling outside the classroom?

In my Storytelling Membership you will:
  • Learn how to use story and storytelling to engage your students and get them thinking, speaking, reading, writing, problem solving and more.
  • Get story-based teaching ideas that you can use in your own classroom.
  • Develop your storytelling skills and confidence and help your students do the same.
  • Become part of a community of like-minded teachers.
