KATHALAYA – “STORYTELLING “ WORKSHOP FOR TEACHERS.
The story is the oldest form of teaching. It gives children the answers to the biggest questions of creation and life. Stories Define us, Shapes us, Control us and make us. Not every human culture in the world is literate, but every single culture tells stories.
Benefits of Story.
- Raises the enthusiasm for reading texts to find stories, re-read them, etc.,
- Improves listening skills.
- Is enjoyed by children from Kindergarten to the end of the elementary level. Later it develops reading habits among children.
Our School has organized a storytelling workshop on 24th September 2019 by Founder of ‘KATHALAYA’ Smt. Geetha Ramanujam. KATHALAYA is the only globally recognized Academy for Story Telling.
It was a wonderful learning experience for teachers. Geetha Madam enthralled us by her amazing mimicking styles, attention-grabbing skills, body language, actions and intonation of voice.
Her unique style of imitating the various characters of the story made visualization easy. Her skill of assigning character of the story to all the participants made them involved for a longer time. It motivated teachers to use this effective art of storytelling to students in the classroom.
