Program: The Importance of Stories presented by Brian Wilhorn

Location: West Bend Community Memorial Library, 630 Poplar Street, West Bend 53095

Times:

  • 5:45 Appetizers
  • 6:00-7:30 PM Business Meeting 
  • followed by program 

Description: Students can’t always travel to distant places nor can they go back in time. In life, we can only experience events through our own perspective. But stories can take us to these places and times. Stories can help us see through another’s eyes. Come hear Brian Wilhorn share how the stories in great children’s books can spark interest in content area lessons, build background knowledge, connect students to characters they understand and promote a deeper understanding of the lessons we teach.

Brian Wilhorn: Back by popular demand, Brian is returning to the Washington/Ozaukee area for a new presentation sure to spark ideas and enthusiasm for stories. He is currently a reading intervention teacher in central Wisconsin where he lives with his wife, children, and too many piles of books.
