Geri Keams: "Coyote and Spider Woman and Other Creation Stories." Cue Sheet.
Carr, Gail
This performance guide is designed for teachers to use with students before and after a storytelling performance of "Coyote and Spider Woman and Other Creation Stories," by Geri Keams, a Navajo storyteller. The guide, called a "Cuesheet," contains seven activity sheets for use in class, addressing: (1) The Storyteller Tells Her Story (where the storyteller describes the importance of storytelling as she was growing up and discusses her work); (2) Telling Stories (discussing why tell stories, what makes good storytelling--including words, voice, facial expressions, and body movements, and listeners who are partners--and what makes a story worth telling); (3) The Stories (providing some information about two stories and offering a Venn diagram for story discussion); (4) Picturing a Story (with an illustration activity for students based on the performance they attended); and (5) What Did You Learn? (an activity sheet to show what students learned about Native Americans from listening to these stories). Resources for further exploration are listed. (SR)
