WHAT DO WE DO?
In the Schools…
One Voice Nashville provides in-depth training for students on how to tell stories and conduct interviews.
Oral Storytelling: Students practice telling a story, eventually without notes, following the 5 elements of a story: Characters, Setting, Conflict, Plot, & Theme.
Narrative Journalism: Students learn how to conduct interviews with community members about a topic they choose to explore. Our curriculum integrates Social-Emotional Learning, History, English, Creative Writing, Electronic Knowledge, Audio Engineering, and much more.
In the Summer…
One Voice Nashville offers Summer Camp which covers a basic overview of storytelling, narrative journalism, podcasting, the listening process, and story structuring to middle school and high school students.
*All students create an interview profile piece (covering a topic of their choice) and an oral story to share. Students conduct presentations on the final day of camp for friends and family.
