B Ed3 students took part in a short Storyline Workshop run by Sallie Harkness as part of their course on ‘Sensitive Issues in Health’.
Working in groups the students were invited to create imaginary families. Each student made a small figure representing their particular family member and wrote a brief biography of their character. The families were introduced and their homes located on a small community frieze.
Working with Sallie and Monica Porciani, Lecturer in Health Studies, the student groups explored incidents linked to the theme of sensitive issues and told the stories of how their family dealt with problems and difficulties.
Student Teachers attending courses at the University of Strathclyde Jordanhill Campus were introduced to Storyline recently in a series of lectures and workshops presented by Sallie Harkness of Storyline Scotland.
Students taking the Postgraduate Diploma in Primary Education were an attentive audience at two mass lectures on Storyline. The morning presentations introduced the Storyline approach via the ‘New Neighbours’ topic then looked at Storyline principles in practice.
In the afternoon the students visited the ‘Enchanted Forest’ Storyline developed at Aberfoyle Primary by P1 teacher Lynda Bancroft.
