Mrs. Kapanidou Training Teachers


Mrs. Kapanidou was invited by Patakis Publications to deliver a training programme for Preschool and Elementary teachers, linked to the book that she recently illustrated. The book titled “Does the real Triceratops feel fear?” was written by Vagelis Iliopoulos and it explores the subject of Bullying at school through the story of a young boy and a Triceratops. Linked to the National Anti-Bullying day, which is on the 6th of March, the author and Mrs. Kapanidou prepared an interactive workshop each one on their area of expertise, in order to raise awareness on this subject and train teachers on methods of exploring it with their students. During the fully attended workshop, Mrs. Kapanidou trained teachers on interactive play, drama games and visual education methods, with which all types of learners can be included and involved, and offered tailor-made advice on how these methodologies can be applied on different grade levels. The workshop was completed by book signing and sharing of ideas.
