YAL Conference Workshop Description & Documents

What Makes You Special?
Michelle Kranicke, Presenter

The workshop will give participants a hands-on experience using movement to support literacy. You will be introduced to the fundamentals of abstract movement and will become comfortable creating abstract movement phrases. You'll utilize sense-webbing and movement to analyze Sahara Special. You'll learn how movement can access profound aspects within your own experience and enhance your own descriptive writing, and subsequently the writing of your students. - Workshop Description for YAL 2005
