Storytellers, Beauty & the Beast Author Visits Literature- Authors,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Martha Hamilton and Mitch Weiss are award winning authors and recording artists and would be happy to visit your school in that capacity. They will tell stories, give tips on telling, and answer any questions students have. Their story collections include world tales that have been rewritten so that they are accessible for telling by children. After seeing Mitch and Martha tell stories, students will be excited about telling tales themselves. Storytelling is a fun activity that is highly educational. All the story books have tips for telling which make it possible for teachers to have each student (second grade and up) choose a different tale, learn it, and share it in front of classmates. Those who choose to do so can tell for other classes as well. Some of the tales are simple and short enough that they can then be retold by first graders and even kindergartners. Mitch and Martha's performances will also serve as catalysts for creative writing.
