Tell Me a Story: Narrative Development in Elementary Age Children

Instructor: Lydia H. Soifer, PhD
Date: Wednesday, March 1, 2023
Fee: $120 

Storytelling is an essential part of early childhood and reading education in the elementary grades. Learning how to tell stories and understand their structure is an important precursor of reading comprehension. In this workshop, Lydia Soifer, PhD, will review the sequence and milestones of narrative development in children and identify key markers that indicate an elementary-aged child may be struggling in narrative comprehension. Dr. Soifer will present and discuss strategies to develop the skills needed to build narrative comprehension and offer ideas for facilitation in classrooms for teachers of students in grades K – 4.
