The responsibility of the National Park Service should be to interpret and convey the contribution of each park and the park system to the nation's values, character, and experience. This workbook (or "thinkbook") provides activities, exercises, and examples to help National Park Service personnel learn how to tell compelling stories. The workbook discusses what compelling stories are (emblematic anecdotes or pieces of information); how to use compelling stories; developing interpretive programs around compelling stories; measuring the effect of compelling stories; identifying compelling stories; and what to do with compelling stories. Contains two example compelling stories and 10 "think exercises." (RS)
