Dr. Kayla Hostetler from Aiken SC is requesting a classroom visitor through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

The Magic of Storytelling

Help me give my students the experience of interacting with an expert storyteller. This experience will provide students with an interactive storytelling workshop in which students develop storytelling skills.

My Students

My students bring with them a wealth of knowledge and experiences into the classroom. My students come from a variety of different backgrounds and lived experiences that merge together into one classroom. They are inquisitive and reflective individuals. They are hard workers and extremely kind to each other. It is a privilege to teach them.

My Project

Ms. Daise will explain how storytelling helps us understand diversity, celebrate inclusion, and break down barriers through our personal tales.

Ms. Daise will engage students in an interactive storytelling workshop in which students develop empathy and respect for others by telling personal and traditional stories from another’s perspective.

She will help students understand how to tell a story to bring history alive. Students will understand the importance of studying literature and stories.

She will also share with students a journey through the stories, songs, language, history, and culture of the Gullah community.
