Culminating 5-Hour Cross-Site Professional Development Workshop


 100% of participating teachers reported that they were now comfortable with storytelling, compared to 32% before participating in the professional development or residency workshops.


 100% noticed an impact in their students’ core literacy skills, including:


 Acknowledging different points of views, including speaking in a different character voice


 Using words and phrases acquired through conversation, being read to, and responding to texts


 Making connections between self, text and the world around them


 Speaking audibly and expressing thoughts, feelings, and ideas clearly


 Describing familiar people, places, things and events and providing additional detail


 Continuing a conversation through multiple exchange


 100% felt that their interactive storytelling skills supported their students’ social- emotional development in self-expression, empathy, creative problem solving, and the ability to collaborate with others.


Following the residency, 92% of teachers report that they have continued to use the skills developed during the professional development and residency workshops. One-third of the teachers have found that their skills have application beyond literacy lessons in the classroom – a statistic indicating that this initiative is having an impact even broader than originally anticipated.
