We hear stories about celebrities and famous people all the time. What about our friends and the people in our families? What are their stories? What can we learn from them? What are our stories? What can people learn from us?
In this course we will look at art, poetry, songs, videos, interviews, conversations and other ways people tell stories. We will practice listening, critical thinking, writing an opinion, and using technology to learn in new ways. Join us if you want to talk about:
- All the ways people tell stories
- Why stories are important
- The stories from our communities
- The stories we would like to tell and how we will tell them
Tracey Mollins developed and delivered this course for AlphaPlus in 2008.
