Ready, Set, Tell! Discover the Storyteller Within You
Public speaking is an important life skill. Storytelling helps students and adults feel more comfortable speaking in front of an audience. Explore the elements that lead to finding, learning, developing and performing a story. Experience creative activities designed to help you begin using storytelling in the classroom, at home and in your workplace.
Once Upon A Time … Storytelling and Creative Writing
Storytelling inspires creative writing. We teach the process of oral editing as a tool for creative writing. We can focus on folktales, tall tales, how and why stories, as well as other educational standards.
Turning Points™ – Discovering Your Personal Narrative
Through storytelling activities, students and adults develop a personal narrative. They also develop a deeper understanding of how the turning points in their lives have caused personal growth, change and the recognition of important universal lessons.
Make Way For Picasso™ – Extending Stories with Art
Storytelling awakens the imagination to nourish creative energy. We will present hands-on art projects inspired by the stories we share. Students will create their own art piece then tell or write a story about their project.
Storytelling – A Family Affair
Sharing and investigating family stories is a way of opening lines of communication, sharing information, history and is just plain fun. This workshop can be used as a family involvement evening, a storytelling and creative writing project for students or an intergenerational storytelling experience.
