Heart of the Story

Teaching Artist: Daniel Romano

Students learn the many ways a story can be told in this innovative program taught by storyteller and puppeteer Daniel Romano.  Each week they will be engaged in a folktale through storytelling, read-alouds, role plays, and/or puppet shows, comparing and contrasting the art forms.  By program’s end, students will adapt a folk tale into a puppet show that they perform for other children at your school. Also available for after school.
