The Story Maker course gives teachers an avenue to spark their class' interest in storytelling, which they can then nurture and ultimately transform into excitement about reading and writing. By introducing new topics in the classroom through storytelling, teachers utilize this strategy to help students build and retain reading comprehension skills and vocabulary.
By using the strategies found in the Story Maker course, students can be introduced to more difficult or higher-level texts. By incorporating the ideas from this course in the classroom, teachers can also evaluate and assess a student's reading comprehension. The course provides three credit hours, which count towards professional development hours for Act 48 for Pennsylvania teachers.
