Character interpreters portray the people whose stories they tell.  This incredibly powerful storytelling technique can be used to teach history, current political and social issues and more.  Because personal connections help listeners remember the stories they have heard, character interpretation is useful in museums and classrooms.

This 30-page book is a step-by-step guide to research, story-crafting, costuming, staging and performing.  Aimed at museum and classroom educators, storytellers and reenactors, it contains graphic organizers for gathering information, and rubrics to evaluate performances.  Its spiral binding makes the organizers easy to copy for your students.
