Carl Weintraub & We Tell Stories

El Anciano

This innovative theatre troupe brings books to life through their innovative approach to dramatizing stories and inspiring students to read. This unit reveals the steps in their creative process and the art of improvisation and storytelling.  Lessons build basic theatre skills, and trust in partner and group work, leading to the dramatization of good literature. The We Tell Stories video shows excerpts their interactive performances and students deeply engaged in re-telling each story along with professional actors. Transformation and Enduring Values support the unit’s concepts and themes.
