All welcome!!

I wrote the beginnings of an abstract for the leaflet. For something longer and more detailed about my session I would like to extend the short paragraph you already have on the website (which begins…’This research seminar’ and ends ‘the imaginative world of Shakespeare’s plays’. Then, to make it a fuller description it continues as follows :

‘Sarah Gordon will explore the educational principles behind active storytelling and will show some filmed video footage of children who are actively involved in the Young Shakespeare Company’s performance of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. Seminar participants will have the opportunity to gain a first-hand insight into the practical strategies of active storytelling and gain an understanding of how young children are creatively and imaginatively inspired by their experience of being involved in Shakespeare’s stories’

Biog :
