All participants will receive a CUNY Certificate of Attendance. 

Description: Experience this FREE, fun, hands-on opportunity to develop, practice, and refine the Interactive Storytelling skills learned in Level 1 and explore how to use them to support the New York  Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Learning Standards for early childhood students.

Interactive Storytelling and STEM are natural partners -- both share sequential learning and habits of mind that support creative problem-solving, imaginative thinking, and transference of skills and knowledge to new experiences. Incorporating the interactive storytelling into children’s daily experiences with math and science taps into their innate desire for active, multisensory learning. Children literally embody concepts by singing and dancing, and they engage their imaginations through storytelling and dramatization.

Who should attend: This professional development is open to all NYC DOE and CBO early childhood educators who have completed the Level 1 Interactive Storytelling Workshop.
