Session

Education and Development

Description

The aim of this session is to demonstrate how teachers and students can fight for causes close to their hearts. This will be done on the example of the Tales of Strays Campaign which I have started to fight for the welfare of companion animals and to improve the plight of strays worldwide.

During my presentation I will present the three pillars of my Tales of Strays Campaign: storytelling, teaching and materials writing, aiming to encourage teachers to either join the campaign or to fight for a cause they are passionate about through their lessons.

In terms of storytelling, I will demonstrate how stories can be used to inspire young learners to fight for a social cause, but also to improve their English and develop their 21st century skills at the same time. I will focus on activities which can be used both face-to-face and online. The Tales of Strays campaign is about raising awareness and empowering the youngest people on earth through stories on the topics such responsible pet ownership or companion animals well-being, accompanied by numerous free activities and resources.

Moving on, I will explain how by inviting teachers to contribute a lesson plan to the Tales of Strays annual publication, I engage them in the campaign and develop a network of like minded professionals willing to share ideas with others. Each year, the compilation of those lesson plans is made available for free to anyone interested.

And since no matter how creative and engaging teaching materials are, they would not make much of a difference in the world if it were not for the inspiring teachers willing to use them with their students. Since the lesson plans included in each compilation provide detailed Teacher’s guide and ready-to-use materials, they can be used by both experienced and less-experienced educators.
