KTK INTERACTIVE WORKSHOPS
What’s In It for the Kids?
SKILLS ACQUIRED with KTK:
- IMPROVED CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS
The active participation of verbal and visual information yields stronger personal connections to the issue, enhances their understanding of their relationship to the issue, and their ability to recall critical information regarding the issue.
- IMPROVED RETENTION
When children represent issues verbally and visually they increase their ability to remember, hence they raise their capacity to learn, thereby increasing their knowledge of a particular issue.
- IMPROVED COMPREHENSION
Verbal and visual expression help children develop compassion for an issue. Once connections to prior knowledge and previously held opinions are made and the children are exposed to other information and points of view, their capacity to understand an issue expands and deepens.
- IMPROVED SELF-ESTEEM
KTK workshops foster creativity and encourage participation. They give voice to the individual celebrating and stimulating communication and change. Participants learn that what they say has credence and they experience a sense of pride and accomplishment.
If the student’s work is given freely to the public, it becomes a teaching tool and THE STUDENT BECOMES THE TEACHER, thus their work becomes a tool for EDUCATION AND CHANGE .
