I’m getting ready to teach Unit 5, Storytelling. I did a quick search using google and found this amazing website with hundreds of storytelling ideas. I will scour the site, but I thought I should share first!
Here’s another one that I find useful.
And author Aaron Shepard’s site on storytelling is amazing.
Opencourtresources.com has amazing resources for Open Court teachers. One that I’m using is “Tell Me a Story” by Emily Fuhr. I’m using it as part of our unit opener. I’ve developed a short performance task that uses the poem. We will work on this performance task throughout the first few weeks of the unit during Workshop time. Take a look at the pdf that I created for the performance task.
The performance task is:
You are a poet getting ready to perform a new poem with feelings. You must listen to and read the poem. You must sequence the parts of the poem in order to create a flow map and then perform the poem to the class.
