Imagination River Storytelling Camp by Mary Fellows

Keywords: middle school, language arts, oral presentation, library skills, teacher/student relationships

ABSTRACT

The Imagination River Storytelling Camp project taught 120 kids in four middle schools in the Capital Region of New York to be storytellers. Thirty-three of these students participated in a three-day camp to intensively develop their skills. At the first annual Riverway Storytelling Festival in 2003, thirty students told stories to enthusiastic audiences.

The project was sparked by a storytelling curriculum partnership involving a local middle school teacher and professional storyteller. Their experiences and valuable input led to the development of the Imagination River Storytelling Camp project, which paired four middle schools each with a professional storyteller and their public librarian.
