Professional Learning for Educators: Telling Folktales with Shadow Puppets
Professional Development Workshop for teachers of grades 3–12 • Presented by Hobey Ford, Kennedy Center Teaching Artist
Combining storytelling with shadow puppetry brings a variety of cultures to life in the classroom through folktales. During this workshop, teachers become familiar with folktales from many cultures. Participants learn shadow puppetry performance techniques and how to construct their own shadow puppets. Hobey Ford discusses the construction of a shadow puppet theater, scripting a folktale into a play and organizing a performance with students.
