Storytelling Notes.
Carter, Marion L.
Storytelling is a shared experience between the teller and the listeners. The two basic concerns of the storyteller are to choose good stories and to make the telling interesting and exciting. Selection of a story should be based on the criteria of good plot and characters, an authentic setting, appropriate dialog, and appeal to the listerners' experience. Beyond this, the proposed audience will affect the choice of story. When very young children are concerned, brevity is best with an emphasis on visual aids and action. The storyteller can enhance his own and the audience's experience if he likes his stories, creates an imaginative and friendly atmosphere, and practices voice and dramatic techniques which will facilitate his performance.
