Storytelling

Students are introduced to the art of storytelling as the artist tells folktales. Stories are selected to relate to the curriculum. One story is told upon which students focus during the remainder of the sessions. Students participate in activities designed to examine the story's sequence, structure, character, setting, problem, and resolution. Students will add details and change story elements to create an original version.

Available Monday-Friday

Artist: Jean Pouncil-Burton

These skills all apply directly to my students' performances on their oral and written IB exams. Storytelling and improvisational speaking are important life skills.
--J. Fry, East High, Wichita


This whole storytelling assignment really just expanded my thoughts and knowledge about not only my fellow classmates, but the history of people and cultures different from mine. Storytelling has allowed me to stand back and think about the past and how it translates to today. This was freakin sweet.
--Student of J. Fry, East High IB program, Wichita

Jean Pouncil-Burton's presentation was done at an engaging pace and with the main idea clear within the story. She maintained a pace that kept the students engaged and allowed them to participate verbally. She used a rhythm that other characteristics could be used in, or any idea to motivate and support one's self.

What an amazing presentation! The kids really enjoyed it and so did I!
