ALA Annual 2013

Guerrilla Storytime at #ala2013

Guerrilla Storytime is an opportunity for youth services professionals to learn from each other in a informal, off-the-cuff, highly interactive drop-in session. Participants may be asked to share their favorite wiggle song, act out a response to a rude parent, read a book aloud sight unseen and insert interactive elements, or draw one of the 6 ECRR competencies from a bag and talk about their favorite way to teach that competency. Participants will be bringing musical instruments, and flannel board pieces or puppets are welcome. Sessions will be Friday and Saturday at 3pm in the UnCommons, and everyone is welcome to join in or spectate. We can always learn new storytime skills, and who better to learn from than each other?
