Storytelling, Writing and Reading
Workshop or Residency for grades 3rd through 6th
Kids learn the six parts of a story (who, what, when where, why and how) and together create a story of their own. They learn how to bring written stories to life through description that incorporates the five senses, emotions and comparison. They learn to make the story meaningful and memorable through character development. Mark incorporates the various elements of theatre: staging, props, sound, backdrops, transitions, voices, character development, which can be incorporated in the kids own plays or in verbal storytelling. The combination of power point, demonstration and participation keep the kids attentive, but most importantly they learn key concepts that will stay with them.
