Storytelling is a great way to encourage students to use their imaginations while practicing speaking skills. In this interactive session, we will look at three storytelling activities designed to get teenagers talking, listening to their peers and making predictions. Inspired by a video clip, a photo, and a live-action picture created right there in the classroom, the stories we hear may not be true, but they are sure to be exciting.
