Building Reading Skills Through Storytelling
From television and movies, to novels and comic books, stories are all around us. A good story has the potential to truly engage, entertain, and inspire its audience. As English teachers, we should harness the power of stories to captivate our students. This webinar will help teachers to structure effective reading lessons that focus on using stories to build strong readers. .
