Newspaper Theater: Storytelling with Puppets and Music
  • Rebecca Saunders, University of Massachusetts Boston
Inspired by Japanese Bunraku puppetry, this project demonstrates how the arts can help teachers and puppeteers reach the different intelligences of students (based on Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences theory). In groups of 4-5, participants will tell a story from a culture unfamiliar to them, manipulate a puppet, and play music that they have specifically orchestrated for the story.
