Storytelling Arts, Inc. in cooperation with the Teacher Preparation Program at Princeton University presents the fifth annual

Susan J. Epply
Storytelling Institute for Teachers

June 28 – July 2, 2004 Non-residential program
July 11 – July 16, 2004 Residential program

at Princeton University

The Susan J. Epply Storytelling Institute is an intensive, weeklong storytelling workshop designed for teachers who would like to learn to tell stories with confidence, ease, and the joy of sharing. During the week each participant will learn to tell a folktale of his/her choice. In the mornings we will work with the story through movement, character, voice, image, and spirit. We will also discuss issues that arise when we begin to share our stories: how we set the tone for our stories; how we discover the sense of wonder that compels teller and listener alike; how we reveal our understanding through silence and gesture as well as words. In our afternoon workshops we will explore other aspects of storytelling such as shaping a personal story, finding links between telling and writing, and telling participatory stories to young children. Throughout the workshop we will discuss the relevance and application of storytelling to education. Susan Danoff, founder and Executive Director of Storytelling Arts, and guest storytellers, will teach the institute. We will run workshops for one group during the week of June 28th and for two groups the week of July 11th. Each group will be limited to 15 participants.
