Welcome to Storyteller, a standalone one time class that looks to build Learners understanding of the stories they share and the ones told to them on a daily basis.

Learners will learn: - The basic purposes of why we share stories in the first place. - How to better listen to what is being told to you so that you can understand why it's being told to you. - The difference between knowing something and being able to teach it. - Some simple conflict resolution skills. - Build confidence in sharing their own thoughts and opinions.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
When discussing factors of manipulation of stories, current events and news will be used as examples of forms of storytelling and the effect they can have on society.
