Young Voices

Teaching Artist: Sherry Norfolk

Students experiment with visualization, drama skills and storytelling techniques to act and “tell” their way through the process of writing a story. The classroom teacher selects a theme; Sherry then tells a story based on that theme and dissects its structure for students to use as a framework in crafting their own versions. To ensure others visualize the story clearly, students are encouraged to create images that speak to them, develop characters that come alive and utilize descriptive detail. Also available for virtual residencies.

Audience: Grades 2-12
Format: Residency
Curriculum Connections: English/Language Arts, Social Emotional Learning, Social Studies/Culture
