August 1 - 5, 2017: Return to Innova Schools in Lima, Peru. After working with 200 early childhood educators in Lima last August, Bill returns to the Innova Schools to lead professional development in Storytelling with the teachers of English. From August 1 - 4, Bill will offer the teachers an immersion in the use of storytelling to build English comprehension and active use. The Peruvian teachers of English will learn to tell stories, lead story-making activities and energize their young students in the imaginative possibilities as they begin to learn a new language. Each of the 4 eight hour sessions will include folktales, songs, games and phonemic awareness activities that support the upcoming units of study in the Innova Programs. Bill's "Narrative Classroom" approach will be actively explored by the teachers and they will create content that is meaningful to them and their work. Bill first visited Lima and the Innova Schools in August 2014; the schools decided to incorporate storytelling for early childhood in all of their 35 schools. Business Insider named the Innova Schools one of the 13 most innovative schools in the world!
