Tales Told is Lee and Jody Rose. We are performer/educators who develop educational experiences for high school and college students by using the rich history and culture of rural Downeast Maine as our learning lab.
Lee also teaches English Language Arts and digital media in Machias, Maine and recently directed a production of David Auburn’s Proof at the Maine School of Science and Mathematics. Jody continues her work curating a private art collection in Addison, Maine. With the backing of a Maine Arts Commission SMART Grant and the support of the Maine Coast Heritage Trust, we designed and delivered a class for the alternative high school at the Cobscook Community Learning Center in Trescott, Maine. Students collected oral history, conducted primary research in archives and attics, and used field work to supplement their use of more standard research tools.
We can lead an experience for you, as we did with the CCLC, or we can provide a template and resources for you to set up your own course of study.
Jody and Lee have each taught at the college level and Lee is a certified high school and adult education teacher so our methodology is repeatable, cost-effective and satisfies Common Core and Maine Learning Result standards.
