Have I gotta story for you!

​​​​​​​​​What  was ancient is now modern. What was old​ is new. 
For children and adults surrounded by the remoteness of digital encounters, the contrast of live storytelling is striking. 
Spoken stories connect people. They encourage, educate, engage, entertain. Stories reignite our connection to each other, and narrow the gap caused by too much digital information.
Teachers can use storytelling techniques to promote critical thinking skills and connect students to history. 
Stories share the lessons of human experience as no other medium can.
