Storytelling

Storytelling is the heart of all great teaching and learning. It uses the most fundamental human tools – voice, gesture, emotion, humor – to their fullest, to stir empathy, connect directly, create a community of listeners and bring them to another time and place. Storytelling is a foundational skill for everything from writing a persuasive essay, to delivering a presentation, to conceptualizing a problem to solve. YAMA’s storytellers and authors bring students international and historical tales; workshops on finding, shaping and performing stories; and programs on adapting stories to the page.
