Stories from the Neighbors
In this multicultural storytelling program, folk tales and fables include stories centered around social justice, immigration, tolerance, and diversity. Stories from the Neighbors embraces the cultural diversity that is found within our communities and shows students how much they can learn from people in their own neighborhoods. Students compose sounds to the stories shared, and the assembly culminates with a storytelling game in which the students find and tell their own stories, discovering how their voice is part of the greater communal voice!
