Practicing Democracy: A Toolkit for Educating Civic Professionals Lesson 7
- Develop skills for sharing personal stories that connect with community stakeholders and call others to action.
- Learn to use stories to develop leadership and make a difference.
“Public narrative” is a concept developed by Marshall Ganz, senior lecturer at Harvard University, based on his work as an organizer over many years. Participants will use Ganz’s essay, “What Is Public Narrative?” and the Public Narrative Participant Guide to develop their own public narratives. This process will help students explore the power of crafting stories to develop leadership in themselves and others.
