This workshop provides some theoretical background into links between speaking and listening and reading and writing. But mostly it is a participatory workshop demonstrating various oral story telling activities that lead Middle School students into creative writing and critical literacy. Participants will take part actively in exercises consisting of both talking and writing to produce various creative writing outputs that can be adapted in various classes, in both the English curriculum and in other subject areas. These activities are drawn from works of Gianni Rodari, Jack Zipes, Madeleine L’Engle, Gwendolyn Brooks and other writers, as well as the facilitator’s experiences as a teacher, storyteller- and writer-in-residence in various schools, and universities
