Storytelling

Storytelling is an integral part of our lives.  It is older than the written word, and as modern as today’s latest digital app.

Storytelling is a way we make sense of our world and it is the way we understand our relationship to it.

Storytelling can be used to help students learn — and care about — other people, other ideas, other places.  Asking students to become storytellers is to encourage them to be not just consumers of media and information, but active and thoughtful producers of media.
