Description

The ability to understand the structure of a story and to use this knowledge to share stories benefit students in more ways than one: these skills are critical for long-term academic, personal and social success.

Don’t miss this chance to learn from internationally-renowned language and literacy expert and Board Certified Specialist in Child Language, Carol Westby, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-CL on how the ability to tell a detailed and coherent personal and fictional story is critical for:

  • Engaging in conversations
  • Developing and maintaining relationships
  • Developing a sense of self and self-determination
  • Regulating one’s behavior
  • Making informed choices, goal setting, and logical problem solving

You will learn how personal narratives allow students to understand their own behavior and that of others, thereby developing emotional regulation. You’ll also learn how a student’s sense of self and early narrative emerge through reminiscing about shared experiences.

Carol will teach you techniques and procedures that will support your students’ social-emotional and self-regulation development while meeting the goals set out in the English Language Arts (ELA) Standards. You’ll learn:

  • The importance of storytelling to social-emotional development
  • The story grammar elements that build organized story retelling
  • Techniques to help children recognize mental states in characters, themselves, and others (Theory of Mind)
  • How to help students understand a character’s behavior to better predict the consequences of their own actions
  • The relationship of identifying setting, plot, and character traits to social-emotional skills, self-regulation, selfidentity, and problem solving
  • Procedures to develop the language and vocabulary that express connections between emotions/mental states and actions/events
  • How to use scaffolding to support the ability to infer
  • Tools that will help you assess and document the development of your students’ narrative structure, coherence, vocabulary, linguistic elements, and progress in meeting state ELA standards
  • How to choose specific literature that will trigger reminiscing and reflecting

Elevate your support of students with a variety of language, literacy and behavioral disorders.
