Edinburgh Corn Exchange
On 27th February 2009 the Scottish Book Trust held the Creative Sparks Conference at the Corn Exchange, Edinburgh. Keynote speakers Ninive Caligari and Michael Rosen spoke on Igniting the Desire to Write and Read.
More than 50 delegates chose to attend seminars on how to use the Storyline Approach. The presentation began with Fergus McNicol, Storyteller, relating the tale of the ‘Three Donalds’, followed by Sallie Harkness suggesting how this story could be used to plan and deliver a book-based storyline. Finally Steve Bell talked about how other Storylines could be developed in the classroom. This input attracted much interest and we have already been contacted by a number of teachers who are keen to implement Storyline approaches in their classooms.
Storyline Scotland is grateful to the Scottish Book Trust for providing the opportunity to showcase Storyline at this important event.
