Building Wide Alignment
Have one of our storytellers contact you to see a sample lesson plan (coming soon)
Story Example: The Turtle Who Just Couldn’t Keep His Mouth Shut A story of self-control
To make this as easy as possible for schools to use and spread these stories, we’ve come up with a flat rate of $3,000 per building.
Here’s what students are saying:
- “When we listen to the stories and really try to understand them, we can become better citizens and better friends.”
Here’s what teachers are saying:
- The stories have helped the children quickly internalize behavioral messages that have otherwise been difficult to teach. They will carry these stories with them for the rest of their lives.”
- The stories seem to have countless potential in the classroom and community with involvement from staff, community members and students.
- The stories can empower students to be involved and make changes in themselves, their home and their communities.
- Love the idea of having High School students share the stories and discuss the characters with younger, elementary school students.
- It is so important to allow students to tell their story, and not fall into the trap of defining students by, and teaching a single story.
