Spooky stories or urban myths, the spine-tingling sensations connecting us all. Fueling and encouraging student’s communication and listening skills, igniting their imaginations, and empowering students to be inventive and expressive with their own unique stories.
Run over 4 x 1hr sessions (see Session outline below) to be completed in one day.
Please email education@monkeybaa.com.au

Session 1:
Spooky Storytelling
Students will be introduced to the ‘scary’ nature of the material and how to ‘shake off’ the scariness, and engage in practical storytelling exercises to improve how they structure and
deliver stories.
Session 2:
Building the Tension
Students will be guided in choosing and refining their selected stories to bring the tension alive and heighten the complication.
Session 3:
Building the Terror-Bite Booth
The class will work with the facilitator to physically construct their very own ‘booth’ in which the students will record their stories.
Session 4:
Recording the Spooky Stories
Students step inside the Terror-Bite Booth
to digitally record their stories. These stories
are then sent to Monkey Baa and go towards the creation of the show Terror Bites.
