my first storytelling experience
So, here's my first storytelling experience. It's the story of "Mines, Unions, and the Battle of Bunker Hill," one of my favorite PNW history stories. I found the story originally in a really boring textbook that I had while an undergrad, but the story was so fascinating and funny that I've really adapted it. When I tell this story in class, I usually have overheads and it's way more boring because I am making students take notes. But, it's one that I love to tell, because when my friends complain about labor unions, I try to remind them of why unions were developed in the first place. I told this one at a game night event (I told my friends that they needed to listen to a story for my storytelling class first).
