Marketplace Stories: Folk tales from the Arab world

Susick Elementary recently received a $3,750 grant from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs to fund a performance of Wild Swan Theater’s Marketplace Stories: Folktales from the Arab World. In addition to the performance, teaching artists from Wild Swan Theater visited Joan Greenwald's 2nd/3rd grade class five times this fall to help students adapt an Arab folk tale of their own. Students presented their folk tale along with the professionals on December 15. .
