Local Library to Host ‘Playshop’
(Dover, Ohio) – The Dover Public Library is now accepting registration for the upcoming ‘Playshop’ for educators and librarians.
Officials explain the event is perfect for those looking for a few new tools to add to their public speaking toolkit. Award-winning cultural ambassador Dr. David Gonzalez will speak as part of the “Playshop” based on his personally developed Confluence Model Curriculum: “The Four Rivers of Storytelling.”
Dr. Gonzalez notes on his website, “In this model the four distinct elements of communication: language, voice, gesture, and imagination are seen as independent ‘rivers’ which flow together – Confluence. Physical and vocal warm-ups and a fun array of theater games are used to teach the elements of the model. Participants get a chance to employ the new skills they have learned. Lots of fun, lots of learning!”
Library officials note that his Emergent Storytelling workshop will provide everyone with strong narrative skills that will increase the impact of stories and lectures in classrooms and storytimes. Participants will earn 5 Continuing Education hours.
The workshop will be held at Dover Public Library Saturday October 20, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.. Lunch is included in $65 registration fee. Call Claire Kandle at 330-343-6123 for more information or to register. Registration begins September 1 in the Children’s Department at Dover Public Library.
