Storybridge Storybridge is a network of parents and teachers who love storybooks and storytelling. The name “Storybridge” comes from our belief that stories serve as a bridge between cultures and people.
The project was created in 2011 when Class Acts collected 1500 children’s books and created an English Children’s Book Section at the the Korunni Branch of the Prague City Library. The project was launched with funds from the US Embassy.
We have two main activities:
1. TEACHER/PARENT MEETINGS
We explore techniques that help make telling stories more dramatic and interesting to children, particularly in groups mixing a range of levels of language comprehension. We have also examined specific books, songs and games. Meetings are held four times per school year, typically on Saturday mornings, and are free of charge.
2. STORYTELLING AT THE LIBRARY
Class Acts volunteers lead storytelling once a month at the library, focusing on how to make the books accessible to children learning English.
Next Storybridge meeting will take place on 17th January 2015 at KC Kampa, Prague 1. This time we will focus on drama techniques. This Storybridge session will be led by Nadima El-Khalafawi. More information in News section.
