Storytelling and the oral tradition are the grandparents of the literature and the entertainment we enjoy today. Storytelling fulfills the preservation of traditions, cultures, and values that thrived before written and electronic communication. Our region hosts the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough and is known worldwide as a cradle of the art of Storytelling.
Schools can host a program for the entire
student population, or for individual classrooms. In addition to
this, sometimes members have particular stories which may fit a
school theme or current unit of study. Our desire is to make your
TaleTellers experience the best it can be and we want to be used
as a teaching tool. From time to time, our students offer
residencies in storytelling, or other curriculum needs. The
opportunities are endless, so
