Thank you for your interest in Story Listening and for your service to vulnerable language learners. Learn more about free professional learning opportunities using stories and pleasure reading.
We hope to make simple, low-cost training available to teachers of refugees, offering:
- Free attendance to teachers of refugees for all in-person, live events and training. We may request teachers pay for lunch and materials.
- Free online Story Listening training for beginning teachers. Instruction is appropriate for those with limited background or volunteer teachers: covering the basics of Comprehension-Based Teaching. More details are available upon request.
- “Live” Events. Please contact us below to request free in-person training for larger groups in your community.
- Online. Private online forms allow small-group exchanges and forums for questioning and reflecting as you try out the method in your classroom. Groups are divided by language: English, French, and German.
This professional development is offered at no cost to volunteer teachers with priority to those serving refugee and displaced persons. If you are a paid teacher serving an under-served or under-developed community and you accept a lower salary as a consequence, you may also qualify.
The first step is to complete the interest form below. You will be contacted with information to get started.
