2. Peninnah Schram, YU Professor Emerita, was invited to present a talk about storytelling at a recent Seminar in Israel that was sponsored by the Israeli Ministry of Education. She presented her talk, "Storytelling as a Tool for Promoting Speaking in a Classroom," on Thursday December 29, 2016 to an audience of 80 educators from English Departments who are involved with the Professional Learning Communities (PLC) in schools throughout Israel.Since the seminar's focus was on increasing dialogue in English from elementary through high schools in Israel, Peninnah's emphasis was on telling participatory stories in the classroom to inspire students to enter into the "dialogue" more actively and in more creative ways.
