The New Jersey Storytellers Guild, a Montclair-based organization focused on promoting storytelling statewide and training new storytellers, is hosting an interactive virtual workshop on December 5 at 7 p.m.

“Telling Stories to Teach Language Naturally” will feature Piedad Gutierrez, a retired teacher from the Montclair school system and author of two books on language acquisition by teachers. Gutierrez specializes in the method of teaching skill through reading and storytelling, which focuses on teaching naturally, with humor and without rote memorization.

Guitierrez is a trained historian and educator. She was a university professor teaching Latin American history and a third year high school Spanish teacher.

Participants must join the guild or pre-register at [email protected] for this workshop in order to receive a Zoom link.

SAVE MONTCLAIR LOCAL: We need your support, and we need it today. The journalism you enjoy from Montclair Local, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit, depends on community support – we exist because the old model of ad sales alone simply cannot not fund journalism at the level that we strive to provide. That’s why you’ve seen other local newsrooms downsize or shut down altogether. Montclair Local was created because we believe it is unacceptable; community is at its best when triumphs are celebrated, when power is held accountable, when diverse lived experiences are shared – when the community is well informed.

Montclair Local seeks to increase $ 230,000 donors, members and donors between October 1 and December 31 to put us on a solid footing for 2022 and continue to support the hard work of our journalists into the New Year and beyond. Visit MontclairLocal.news/dons to see how we are doing and make your contribution.
