2018 Story Telling A*, grades 9-12  closed
Courses marked * may be used towards EAL summer study requirements (this is a 15 hour course).Do you struggle with a fear of public speaking? Are you looking for ways to develop your presentation skills? Would you like to captivate an audience? This storytelling class may be the place to start. Storytelling is a skill innate to human beings--we all tell stories, constantly, and perhaps without even realizing it. Storytelling is the most basic tool for entertainment, education, and persuasion, and the foundation on which all other speaking skills are built. Given that we all tell stories naturally, it stands to reason that we can all develop this skill, and learn to tell stories more effectively. A good storyteller has the power to capture the hearts and minds of his or her audience with nothing but words. This week-long storytelling course will encourage you to think about what makes a good story good, and an engaging storyteller engaging. You will watch and listen to stories, of course, but more importantly, you will practice and apply what you learn as you choose a folk tale or fairly tale to practice and tell by the end of the week.
