Ms. Simi Srivastava, Master Storyteller and Founder- Director, Kathashala our resource person for today’s online storytelling workshop organized by Viva publications with a group of SVIS teachers, taught us various ideas for engaging children in and through storytelling that are utterly captivating and imaginative, yet really accessible to the class teacher - she inspired us all to want to go straight out and do some storytelling ourselves! She also taught us that the purpose of storytelling should be entertainment without any inhibitions.
The method she used was also very engaging - we particularly loved the story associated with wit and songs! Really helpful ideas that are practical to use in a class and ideas that I feel confident with. I have developed a new understanding of storytelling. And all of this was grounded through acting, performing and making changes to stories.- fantastic. Please come back and see us again soon!
