Stories of Us: Exploring Oral Histories Through Drama
For teachers of Grades 4-8
Maximum number of participants: 30
Collecting oral histories from community members can enrich students’ understanding of community, culture, and historical events. When students explore oral histories by building dramatic scenes, they not only broaden their understanding of history, they increase their comprehension of story structure and sequence, and develop skills for interpreting and communicating stories. In this workshop, participants examine how to help students collect and interpret oral histories and then create simple dramatic scenes that bring the oral histories to life. Led by Kennedy Center teaching artist Daniel Kelin.
