Join master storyteller, lecturer and president of the Deep Time Journey Network Jennifer Morgan for a dive into deep time. Deep Time storytelling evokes profound experiences of participation in a radically creative Universe while evoking a passion for learning. Light up your classroom with powerful stories of the Universe, Earth and human evolution that serve as a framework and inspiration for further study. Humans have communicated through stories for thousands of years and this medium works as powerfully today as ever . . . conveying detailed information while at the same time providing a big picture for placing all future learning. Further, it has a lasting positive emotional impact on students that can stay with them for years, or a lifetime. Push your boundaries by cultivating your own very unique storytelling voice and bring the excitement of storytelling into your classroom…and/or other work!
