Massachusetts Programs & Performers Directory : Program Description
Off the Page - Storytelling and literacy
|Program Category:||* Authors and Illustrators * Educational Programs * Storytellers|
|Description:||A story is told in words, but seen in the mind. This literacy program excites the imagination. Familiar stories lead listeners back to the books, while original tales leave them hungry for more.
What are we but our stories? The more powerfully we can create stories about ourselves, the more options we have in life. When someone asks a child, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" that is an invitation for them to tell a story.
The more we can control and influence our stories, the more we can control and influence our lives.
On a purely practical level, hearing a story being told opens the listener to the experience of reading. Words on the page are no longer simply black letters, but symbols creating new worlds.
