Human beings have an innate love for stories. We have been telling stories since we learned to communicate, even before reading or writing. Stories create magic and a sense of wonder at the world. Stories teach us about life, about ourselves and about others. Storytelling is a unique way for students and young adults to develop an understanding, respect and appreciation of other cultures.
Learning to tell a story:
- Increases child's willingness to communicate thoughts and feelings
- Encourage use of imagination and creativity
- Increase verbal proficiency
- Enhance listening skills
- Creates empathy and awareness
Through this short workshop we intend to introduce young adults to the art of storytelling. We will explore:
- Story structure
- Use of voice
- Body language and movements
- Share basic tips about audience engagement
