Students explore the art of storytelling by investigating author’s craft, write their own compelling personal narrative, and perform their true story live.
This project provides students with an authentic experience of personal narrative writing and performance. Through their work, students make the connection between their stories, the stories of “regular” people, and the making of great literature. Performing their stories helps students see that storytelling brings people together, builds community, and creates relationships.
Students perform a Moth-style 5-7 minute true story, live, without notes.
