Sixth graders explore oral traditions during storyteller visit

Gloversville Middle School sixth graders recently enjoyed some native storytelling during a visit from James Bruchac. Bruchac is a local survival guide, storyteller, tracker, author and son of the Abenaki and Adirondack storyteller and author, Joe Bruchac. Using Arts in Education funding, GMS teacher Janice DeFino-Jost arranged for Bruchac to visit the school to support the students' unit on oral tradition. 

Bruchac speaks to students in the auditorium.
