Date: March 23, 2019

Instructor: Heidy Barger, Jackson County Schools

Schedule: The workshops will take place from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m.

Location: UGA Aderhold Hall, 110 Carlton Street, Athens, GA 30602

Cost: $45

Description: Tired of the same old narrative lessons and stories? Want your students to be more creative and committed? Images can add depth to narratives and enrich the writing of students as they explore incorporating images and symbolism. Technology plays a huge part in students’ lives and learning and it can allow their stories to become more interactive and multigenre. Participants will play with crafting interactive and multigenre narratives together and create plans for bringing this approach into the classroom.
