Creating Winter Stories in Pictures and Words

This workshop is a continuation of the Time of Day and Weather. Prior participation in Time of Day and Weather is required.
This two-day, remote workshop series will introduce the Picturing Writing Winter Story Unit of Study. Using quality picture books as mentor texts and simple crayon resist-based art techniques, this unit of study teaches narrative writing in a way that is concrete and engaging. Participants will learn a variety of simple art techniques for creating snow and ice. They will also learn how to use quality literature and storyboards to help students develop a solid storyline that addresses all the key elements of a good story in both pictures and words, how to frontload key vocabulary, and how to use the accordion folder as an instructional tool. Participants will experience how to make their pictures come alive through the use of “silver dollar words.” Facilitated using an Artists/Writers Workshop model, this narrative unit can be easily integrated across the curriculum. Participants will meet virtually from 8:00am – 12:00pm, June 17-18.
Taking the introductory Picturing Writing workshop is recommended prior to taking this workshop.
