This 2-Part Foundational Virtual Professional Development session, led by Frieda B. author, Renata Bowers is based on her sixth book Frieda B. Knows It's True... You Are Free to Be YOU, which she wrote as both story and teaching tool. Our shelves are filled with stories… marvelous, engaging tools that, through compelling characters and storylines, help us to better see who we are and believe in who we can be. Bowers leads us through an exploration of how elements of good stories hold beautiful and powerful potential for building a culture of authentic autonomy, community and resilience – for students, staff and families – within a classroom and school.
Through her national-award-winning Frieda B. series of picture books, children's author Renata Bowers has developed an engaging method for utilizing written story to inspire the human story within every child... to help each child believe in self (autonomy) and to be part of something good (community), even in the midst of challenging chapters (resilience).
The Frieda B. The Whole Child (FBTWC) ELA/SEL Toolkit & author-led PD is built on this method and book series. FBTWC provides an array of story-based resources to PK-5 educators for sharing with students, staff and families the beauty of using STORIES to move toward meaningful, relevant academic and social success... all the while complementing and enhancing the school's existing English Language Arts (ELA) and Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) standards and initiatives.
Schools interested in making FBTWC (all lessons & resources) available to all staff are welcomed to purchase the comprehensive FBTWC Toolkit. Author visits, family events, private PD, staff team-building also are available. To learn more, visit FriedaB.com/ES.
