A collaboration between Berkwood Hedge and the Bay Area Writing Project - BAWP - will promote literacy in Berkeley's public elementary schools through the art of storytelling. Berkwood Hedge is sponsoring two training workshops to help public school teachers implement storytelling in their classrooms. Teachers and students will also experience professional storytellers in action at our annual "Telling Tales: A Fall Storytelling Festival at Berkwood Hedge School".
