Telling Folktales through Shadow Puppetry

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.
