Storytelling is an art form that can empower students of all ages while developing confidence and building essential skills in language arts, listening and speaking. 

This experiential class demonstrates various methods for facilitating storytelling with students, telling participatory stories and integrating stories and storytelling into a variety of curriculum subjects. 

We will consider a variety of story genres (myths, fables, fairy tales, folktales) and methods for “unpacking” ideas and themes from those stories. Participants will leave with tools, techniques and stories that are directly applicable to the classroom experience.
