Stories Support Storytelling

We’re thrilled to welcome you to a library of voices from our Wildling community to share with the youth in your learning environments. Our Educator Hub is a resource for educators like you to use so you can implement The Wildling into your learning space. It houses a robust library of videos to accompany our Jambook exercises as well as story examples from Wildling participants, Story Coaches, and Teaching Artists–including published authors, actors, artists and experienced educators.

We’ve found that listening to fresh narratives and approaches to storytelling is the key to connecting participants to their own unique path to expression. This tool is a helpful way to offer new perspectives as you customize and create your own Wildling adventure in the classroom and beyond.

In addition to the videos you will have access to a PDF of the Jambook for easy printing and a copy of our Wildling Google slides template.

If you’re excited about the Educator Hub and and would like access to it,  please contact us.

I know you get how great it is but using it in action with these kiddos has been incredibly therapeutic for them / me… I give them a choice at times to read or write and there’s nothing like watching them go get their Jambook and write unprompted. That’s why I love the back pages too. I already told my PTO that I need $$ for next year. Madly in love. Wildling!

It was a blast and heartwarming to hear students really open up and tell stories from their heart.

I work with a lot of kids whose learning differences make them quiet. I want these kids to be heard. The Wildling helps kids to find their voices and they end up confidently standing in front of a microphone.
