F3 - The Science and Art of Storytelling: Strategies for Making Meaning Out of Personal Life Experiences

Oct 26, 2018 8:00am ‐ Oct 26, 2018 9:00am

Standard: $20.00


Storytelling is both an art and a science. When students understand the underlying structure of stories and develop the executive functioning strategies of visualization and self-questioning, they have a methodology for improving comprehension, oral expression, and writing. During this presentation, tools for self-questioning and visualization are provided, along with methods for teaching struggling learners how to get meaning from their own life events, enabling them to reflect and write about their experiences in a way that builds grit and perseverance.

Learning Objective:

  • ADD/ADHD: Identify characteristics of students with ADHD and/or potential interventions as it pertains to those with language learning disabilities.

Disclosure: Carolee Dean is an author and will be discussing her publications during this session. Carolee Dean and Amy Miller both serve on the board of the Southwest Branch of the International Dyslexia Association.
