Help your students to tell better stories 

Everyone loves a good story.

Whether it’s a book, film, short story, play, video, a video game, a news story, an old fashioned yarn or any other kind of narrative, we all love stories.

And at Felstead Education we believe everyone can tell a good story – as long as they have the right tools.

So that’s why we created The Storyteller’s Toolkit.

The Story Teller’s Toolkit will give your students the skills and the confidence they need to tell great stories every time by learning the essential skills of storytelling structure and character creation.

As a result students will:

  • Feel more confident in their writing skills

  • Be more creative and imaginative in their storytelling

  • Better understand the structure and process of storytelling

  • Create more vibrant and interesting characters

  • Build solid, well developed plots for their stories.

  • Gain greater enjoyment from writing and reading

Being able to tell an engaging, meaningful, powerful story is a vital skill for anyone to have –  especially students.

Whether it is as part of an English curriculum, a Drama or Media project, or even moving into fields such as LOTE or Visual Communications, storytelling helps us to convey information in manner that is second to none.

The program is inspired by the work of Joseph Campbell, one of the most influential story telling experts of all time.

The Storyteller’s Toolbox will empower students to improve both their plot building and character development skills, drawing on practical examples used in popular stories such as Star Wars, The Lion King, Harry Potter and more.

As a result of the program students will be able to:

  • Better understand the universal plot structures that underpin good stories

  • Create strong, unique and purposeful characters, based on time honoured character archetypes

  • Develop greater confidence in their story telling, and broader writing skills

  • Better understand, analyse and critique stories, films and novels in their curriculum

  • Write their own unique, powerful and engaging stories

  • Create higher quality plays, scripts and videos

The program comes complete with teacher’s notes and a range of classroom exercises making it perfect for follow on assignments or for building a unit of work around.

It can be delivered as a one-off lecture style presentation to a full year level cohort, or as a multi-session, more in depth program for smaller groups.

We offer tailored versions of the program to suit Upper Primary, Middle Years and  Upper Secondary students.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to help your students tell better stories!.
