McIntosh, Story Laurie Flying on the Wings of Our Words Literature- Other,
Multicultural- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Story Laurie introduces students to the art of storytelling and walks them through the process of preparing their own folk tale or fable for the telling. In the workshop sessions, storytelling and improve games help the students develop useful storytelling skills such as developing eye contact and use of gesture and voice. The artist teaches students to learn their story by developing imagery and creating a storyboard, rather than through rote memorization. In grades 3 & up, students work individually or with a partner; for grades K-2, students learn a group tale to share with other groups or classes.
