MassMouth Presentation at BHS: September 23

Storytelling has gotten big. Story Slams – competitions where professional and amateur storytellers compete to discover who can tell the best tale – have become mainstays in major cities across the country. MassMouth is an organization that runs story slams and seminars in Boston, and we were thrilled to have Norah Dooley from MassMouth give a presentation to our seniors about the power of storytelling. The seniors are beginning their process of writing their college essays – in effect, telling stories about themselves – and in her sessions with select senior classes, Ms. Dooley has the students brainstorm and share stories to get the process started.
