One more season of Storytellings at the schools and it has been great. The kids are so brite.  The "Cowboy Way" is passing away so quickly. No more Roy Rogers and Jeen Autry, but I still tell tales about critters and varmit's and beautiful Red birds.So much fun, to be had in the world of storytelling........oel

Well, we had a wonderful season telling this winter and early spring. I have told stories to about 7,000 children 1st thru 6. Five radio programs over KPFT and KLRU. Now I will be telling daily at the Houston Livestock Show and Radio. It is amazing, when you begin maturing into your seventies, folks ask for more and more. What a thrill!.........oel castner

Delighted to be a member of such an important group of tellers. I've told and helped teachers/students to tell for over 30 years. And I'm still learning. My focus is especially on Asia and Asian tales; I've been lucky to work with tellers, teachers, and students across Asia. Now I'm eager to learn from all of you.

The 2008 Arne Nixon Student Storytelling Festival in Lemoore, CA had a whole theme on geography. That meant the youth told stories from around the world and the afternoon workshops for Fresno State graduate students from the Education Department learned how to meet curriculum standards using geography and storytelling.

What grade(s) do you focus on?

Maybe this will help get my geography series in the schools where it needs to be. Teacher's guide will be completed when the series is completed. I may be able to do individual teacher's guides for the series but at this point, I just am concentrating on getting the series written first. Thanks for inviting me - E :)

I have had five year olds held for an hour listening to Homer - storytelling is our first and most effective communication. Storytelling in the classroom is an organic exchange of information. Bravo Y.E.S.A... tell the tale you heard told.

Great work! You are to be commended for reaching new generatations with is so important for people to have exposure to this art form as a literacy tool and for healthy social and human development. Children are often the most nature storytellers - if they are given permission to use their wonderful imaginations! I often worked with young children from homes where they never spoke, let alone told a story! To see them begin to express themselves was like the emerging butterfly breaking free!

Through the art of Storytelling/Historical Interpretation, the purpose is to educate, challenge, inform and inspire. I believe strongly that helping students to look at history with a different set of lenses, to see the invisible people along with the familiar individuals can enrich and increase their depth of knowledge.
