CCEI is proud to announce the addition of LIT100: Storytelling for Enrichment, Early Literacy, and Fun! to the child care training course catalog.
The new online storytelling course provides comprehensive guidance for incorporating storytelling into the early childhood environment. Participants will learn why storytelling is important for young children, as well as strategies for effective storytelling and rich follow-up activities such as group discussion and playacting to promote self-expression and critical thinking skills. Different forms of storytelling, essential story elements, and ways to improve children's vocabulary and language skills are also covered within the course.
Storytelling is a two-hour, intermediate-level course and grants 0.2 IACET CEUs upon successful completion. CCEI professional development courses are available to account holders with an active, annual individual or center-based subscription, or can be purchased individually.
