Connecting with Native American Tales

I will perform stories from different Montana Native American tribes with similar themes. We will discuss what is similar, what is different, and how we can see ourselves in them.

Connecting with Stories Around the World

I will perform two different stories from two different cultures, linked together by a similar theme. We will discuss similarities in messages and differences in delivery, character, style, etc. Then, we will explore how we see ourselves in the different stories.

Connecting with Folk Tales and Fables

I will perform a pairing of a personal narrative and folk tale that center on a central theme. Then, I will lead them through a workshop writing experience to create their own pairing, using a personal experience that has a theme in common with a well known fairy tale. This workshop will include a lesson plan that a teacher can use if they wish to continue this is a writing assignmenet with their students.
