Jenny Tollefson--OMS Differentiation Teacher--has opened a DonorsChoose fundraising campaing so that OMS students will to be able to participate in a "The Art of Storytelling" session led by master storyteller, Kevin Cordi, to tell their own stories. As we work to build reading skills, students have had opportunities to build these skills across content areas, make choices to show their learning in a variety of ways, skype with local authors and collaborate with expert writers. Partnering with Kevin will expand these opportunities to include storytelling.
Students will have an incredible opportunity to partner with a master storyteller to share their own story in English or their own language, accompany these stories with musical compositions and construct and create backdrops and scenery to complement their stories.
This will blend reading and writing with spoken word, language, music and the arts. Our hope is to showcase this student work at our Multicultural Family Night in May of 2018 to showcase our students, their culture and their talents and achievements. With Kevin Cordi's guidance and expertise, our students will become storytellers and we are so excited to view their creations and performances.
