[This event has been cancelled. We apologise for the inconvenience.]

Using fables and folktales can liven the classroom environment and encourage students’ enthusiasm for learning. Philosophical, rational, popular and vivid, the genre can be employed as an effective and convenient teaching tool in the classroom.

By taking a closer look at the characters in fables and how they express themselves through their actions and movements, the workshop aims to guide teachers and provide strategies in the cultivation of students’ listening, observation, thinking and speaking skills.

Let's use fables as training material, and it will take us into a realm of selflessness, a journey through a world of fantasy.

Recommended for Drama CCA Teachers-in-charge.

This workshop is conducted in Mandarin.
