Programme Synopsis

------------------------------------------- Check with us for digital options. Reading aloud from text interwoven where necessary with oral storytelling techniques. Students will get a demonstration of different ways of engaging with local literature. Reflect on why local literature resonates with local audiences. Ideally, the programme works best with small groups of between 40-100 students (1-3 classes). Asian Storytelling Network, Singapore’s first professional storytelling company, has a pool of skilled artiste educators who have been successfully engaging students and teachers in schools since 2002.
Objectives • Introduction to Oral and Written traditions. • Introduction to local author/authors • Demonstration of some techniques to engage with the text meaningfully. • Draw out the back story or flesh out characters by asking questions. • Explore the text with different rhythm, voices and tone to see what effects it might have. • Engage with extracts from local literature. • Reflect on why local literature resonates with local audiences. • The class teacher will be given one copy of a Singapore Literature book.
