Telling Gould Project Tells Stories of Gould Staff
Telling Gould: Sophomore Storytelling Project
Why do people share stories?
What makes a story enduring, universal, and possibly timeless?
How has storytelling changed over time?
Gould 10th grade English teacher Ben Stonebreaker added that to help Gould’s sophomores better understand the art of storytelling, they were asked to pull a story from within the Gould community. The students interviewed a member of Gould’s staff to gather a stories that the students wrote up and shared with the class. A physical component of the project entailed reducing a story to its essential six words. These words were then laser-cut into a mat board “brick” that become part of a larger instillation. The Telling Gould Project instillation captures thirty-five different stories from the Gould community and is located just outside the IDEAS Center in Hanscom’s eastern stairwell. Come check it out!
