Join Susan MacKay in this Web seminar for an exploration of Story Workshop. Susan and her fellow teacher-researchers at Opal Charter School in Portland, Oregon investigated a question: What is the connection between literacy, play, and the arts? Their work with children led them to design the structure of Story Workshop, a methodology supporting playful literacy. In this webinar, Susan will discuss the pillars of Story Workshop, illustrated by student and teacher work documenting the process.
