What’s Next After the Story Exchange? Mining the Collective Wisdom of Students’ Stories
In this hands-on workshop, we will look at a framework for using the story exchange as a tool in your content-area teaching. Math, science, English, world languages, social studies, advisory – this is a framework for every teacher! We will create story exchange prompts specific to the topics you have to teach. Then we’ll think about how those prompts might extend into projects that explore the questions and understandings from students’ stories. You’ll leave this workshop with a collection of resources, ideas for your own classroom, and a collection of ideas from other participants.

Margaret LaRaia is Director of Learning Resources at Narrative 4. A former high school teacher of English, filmmaking, and humanities, Margaret loves being a thought partner to educators and researchers nationally and internationally to develop research-based, student-centered learning models for educational equity. Two essential principles inform her work: 1) no one knows the full scope of another person’s potential so our responsibility is to create the greatest range of possibility for all students, and 2) teaching is a creative, ethical, intellectual profession that deserves to be valued and supported.
