Learn how to facilitate story circles as developed by Roadside Theater
A Story Circle is 5-20 people sitting in a circle, telling stories or remembrances, led by a Story Circle facilitator. While the themes of Story Circles vary according to purpose, the methodology is the same for each Circle. All Story Circles have as a common objective the development of listening and verbal expression skills, plus a greater appreciation for the cultural gifts and talents of everyday people. All Story Circles should be as much about listening as they are about telling.
Next week, I will facilitate a story circle with you all. Please download handout and read before next week.
