From Our Classrooms to Yours: Creating Connections: Engaging Students Through A New Screen with Kamishibai

Explore the tradition of Japanese kamishibai storytelling and see how it has been transformed to become a pedagogical tool used across the curriculum and around the globe. In this workshop, teachers will examine how to identify themes in their content area and learn how to engage their students in developing those themes using the kamishibai box format. Using this interactive, hands-on method, students will discover new ways to “learn through a screen” while developing sequencing, cause/effect, and cultural competency skills in a wide range of lessons ranging from fairy tales and folklore to sustainability and socio-emotional learning.
