Stories are powerful. In the past, long before books, people used stories to pass down history and legends to create a deeper understanding of their heritage. It was also a way to pass down morals and values from generation to generation. More than just a way of preserving the past, storytelling is a great way to bridge the gap between a reader’s heart and that of the writer. Everyone has a story to tell no matter what kind it may be. Although there is an art to storytelling, at its very foundation, the practice is merely a means of communicating one’s experiences. Perhaps out of a lack of
Stories are surrounding us. Whether you're in school or at work or simply listening to somebody let you know about their day. We learn through stories. As humans we all share experiences through stories. We learn from ones experiences while they tell us the story of what happen to them. We learn about a 12 year old girl named Lisa Chavez. She tells us her story about the first time she has experienced racism. We also learn about a woman named Chimamanda Adiche's and she tells us about the dangers of a single story. While Chimamanda Adiche's tells us her story she explains to us why people have racist thoughts and it’s because of storytelling. Then we learn about Hampl’s piece about memoirs. He tells us what he thinks a memoir is and how true can a memoir be. Stories affect our everyday life, they affect how we see people and how we learn about things.
actions at the end of the story. Showing they can affect many people as well.
They way stories are told may morph, but never will storytelling cease. From their people skills to their memories, there is no argument that storytellers possess boundless talent and intelligence. They were the first educators. And now, storytelling is a large part of everyday life. The news in the morning, the gossip throughout the day, the casual response to the casual “What’s up?” – It’s all a form of storytelling. Our lives are steeped in it. In almost every conversation a story is told. At every turn a story is born. So we all are storytellers, and the world is our audience, just waiting to hear the gospel leave our
Stories are told through various forms of literature, and the overall point of telling a story is to convey a message, a meaning that the author wants the reader to interpret and understand. The author does
We were too traumatized to spend time looking for a safe parking spot. Instead, we pulled up right next to where the firetruck and police officers were on the side of the road. I was amazed by all the attention the accident was given. All of the cars that were passing slowed down for a quick peek to see what all of the excitement was about. Jackie swung open her door and ran up to the police officers. The cold,
Significance: To tell a story right, you have to tell it the way it happened. Get all of your opinions out of the way and tell it the way it’s supposed to go.
The first speaker started off by talking about her childhood and how certain events and her personality had eventually led to her downfall. It made me realize how everyone goes through obstacles that can be hard to overcome and sometimes we are not able to conquer those obstacles. I felt the vulnerability and intense emotions being communicated through the story. I was able to understand her emotions and what she was going through when she began to feel trapped and wanted an escape. I also realized many people find different ways to escape reality so they can feel better. Some people choose alcohol because it’s available to them or
People feel better about themselves, knowing they can stand up for what’s right and what’s wrong. An example in the book would be when Melinda writes what really happened in a note to Rachel. She writes,, “I didn’t call the cops to break up the party, I write. I called-I put the pencil down. I pick it up again-them because some guy raped me” (Anderson 183). Even though Melinda didn’t get the support she needed from Rachel, after telling Rachel she became more confident to tell other people. After telling Rachel, Melinda was able to stand up to Andy, realize it wasn’t her fault, and talk about it with Mr. Freeman. Having the courage to tell one person gave her the confidence to share her story. In real life when people share something that has been on their mind that they have kept in, they become more confident. People become more confident because they had the courage to share with someone, and they realize they will have that courage again. In general people feel better about themselves after taking a courageous step because they don’t have that weight weighing them down

The story can then be calibrated so that it does accomplish it purpose giving the reaction of the audience/speaker ultimate and instant control over the telling of the
The story told it in more context. There was a lot of talking going on to help understand what was going on. It told lots of details about each scene to help understand and picture what was occurring
