Webinar details

Stories at foundation levels are deceptively easy for any writer. In reality, restrictions in language and concepts can be a major challenge for any children’s author.

In this session, Ross will share his tips on:

  • Converting relevant, meaningful language into engaging and fun stories
  • Applying a successful story formula to keep kids actively engaged (and learning!)
  • Delivering practical lesson ideas for using stories in young learner classrooms and at home

Participants will have the chance to win a set of the Studycat Stories series in the language of their choice – English, Spanish, Chinese, French or German.
