Hands on History: Speak Up for Tweens and Teens
Speak Up co-founder, 23-time Moth StorySLAM and GrandSLAM champion, and 18-year public school teacher Matthew Dicks will be teaching a storytelling workshop for tweens and teens ages 11-17 that will provide a solid foundation in the understanding and effective crafting of stories. Whether participants want to improve their public speaking and presentation skills, hone their job or college interview, or simply learn to tell a better, more interesting story on the page or the stage, this workshop might be for them.

Included in this workshop will be:

A behind-the-scenes tour of objects from the CHS collection relating to childhood, teenage culture, and growing up moments  for inspiration before participants start working on their stories

Methods for generating ideas for stories from your life experiences (you have more

stories than you realize!)

Framing an effective story

The importance of stakes in storytelling

The permissible lies in storytelling

The 17 Most Important Rules of Storytelling

In addition to the modeling of stories, direct instruction, and interactive components,participants will be invited to (but not required to) develop a story of their own that will be presented to the class for critique.
