Dear Ros:

Depending on the cultures represented in your classroom, you could share stories that connect with those roots. The teenage years are mainly figuring out who they are as individuals.

Give them their culture and roots and you will see more excitement in the classroom.

You could always connect with billingual tellers if you are unfamiliar with the languages.

Until we tell again,

Hi Rachel,
Of course I have this book!!! I have found it to be very useful. I have an added challenge as I teach high school and my students are not native English speakers... I want to bring storytelling into the classroom. Do you have any advice as I would love to hear it?

Mitch Weiss and Martha Hamilton are inspirations to youth tellers everywhere. Share this clip from YouTube to everyone, especially educators.

Until we tell again,
