Fourth grade ELL students in Ms. Hubbards class at Connors Elementary School in Lewiston have been participating in a Side x Side narrative storytelling program led by teaching artist Antonio Rocha. During the program, students have engaged in various storytelling exercises to learn how to gather details and narrate in an arc format for video. Rocha has also taught storytelling techniques such as facial expression/manipulation and using hand gestures to craft stories. Using their memories, students have created personal narratives and plan to record their stories using Seesaw when school returns to a hybrid learning model. Through the sharing of their stories with Rocha and their class over Zoom, students gained a sense of empowerment and empathy for their fellow classmates.
