Set sail on a joyful journey through the remarkable world of storytelling with Lora Schmidt. For almost 24 years, Lora has captured the imagination and emotions of audiences of all ages in venues as di- verse as the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival, youth detention centers, the U of U Girls Transition Unit, the Kari Sue Hamilton School, and classrooms and libraries across the state sharing stories from around the world and close to the heart.
Storytelling workshops teach students public speak- ing and organizational skills along with encouraging active listening. The Make-a-play residencies, in which students write and act out a play based on a folk tale, encourages cooperation, team work and poise in front of an audience. Both introduce your students to the universality of story and will enliven any classroom. Stories will set your students’ imagi- nations soaring! Lora has been a UDAM teaching
artist since 2000.
