Join us as we learn the art of storytelling. Learn how to be a storyteller, and enjoy the stories told by international storytellers and also by the classmates who choose to tell their stories. Together we will “tell the tale” and “spin the yarns” of yesterday and today including – our stories, limericks, fables, shaggy dog stories. Since seniors are societies consummate storytellers, we will also learn how to create compelling stories about our selves and family members in order to pass on our “living legacy”.
We welcome All ELM Senior Students who do not want to tell stories but want to learn and enjoy listening to stories. During the first part of each class we will learn how to tell stories and / or view and review the stories of “world class” storytellers. During the last part of each class we will listen and review the stories our classmate’s create and want to tell.
Dr. Mark Levine, Instructor
Dr. Mark Levine is a semi-retired organizational development researcher and teacher. Through my human resource development (HRD) perspective, I spent my career as a behavior specialist, researcher and teacher working to improve organization's performance through their most important resource, their people. Through the use of humor and laughter I have been able to help people socialize, work together, and achieve. As a senior, I now enjoy sharing this with my fellow seniors in order to appreciate the humor around us and relieve our anxiety about aging – Laughter is Our Best Anti-aging Remedy,
