Telling the Tale

This project will allow students to practice the art of storytelling while acquiring practice in public speaking and writing through technology. Storytelling is a part of Appalachian culture that is truly becoming a lost art. Students will practice telling their stories out loud, but also alone using a mini iPad recorder. Students will be able to gain confidence while listening to their own recordings. They will be able to copy their stories in prose form, which will allow their writing to have clear voice within their pieces. Finally, students will be able to share their stories with classmates, which will encourage listening, writing, publishing and public speaking skills.
