As part of our early education program, we partnered with Shoreline Children’s Center to try using story drama, the act of collaboratively creating stories in a group environment. Afterword, we surveyed the students and talked to the teachers to find out more about what they learned, what they thought of using story drama, and the impact it had on their class and students. This information was presented as part of an internal data-sharing event foundry10 holds each quarter called Data-Bytes. Check out the slides below!
This data is from a 6-8 week residency using dramatic storytelling from two consecutive years. The teaching arists in 2015 and 2016 were Chelsea LeValley and Amy Jurkieweiz, respectively.
