Artist: Arianna Ross
Type: Professional Development
Enact history by telling its story. Using storytelling in the classroom has proven to be an empowering and educational tool for both the teller/teacher and the listener student. Storytelling improves self- confidence, literacy, and group dynamics. During this professional development workshop, educators learn several activities that can be used to jump-start the creative mind and body, create a safe classroom environment, and deepen students’ understanding of history and other cultures. Participants walk away with an effective set of curriculum-based techniques that increase students’ love of learning.
*All workshops longer than 90 minutes include an on-site orientation meeting.

Watching the children put all their energy into a drama was so perfect! They were able to truly show their emotions.

I'm so glad that my students got to experience the dynamic storytelling of Arianna Ross. Her use of humor, art, music, movement, and literature engaged all of our students in the program. The varied ways that students were involved in the story being told engaged their imaginations and strengthened their listening skills.
