For Middle Schools: Inspiring  and Educational Spoken-Word, Author Programs and Workshops

Stories hook the attention of young people in middle schools, and keep them engaged.

Mark Binder's lessons and tales are designed to get under their radar, and invite them to participate.
Students (and teacher) listen with smiles on their faces, ask great questions and are always eager to hear more.

Middle School Programs include spoken-word storytelling, author visits, writing and storytelling workshops and residencies and family engagement "concerts."

"Middle School is generally a tough crowd, but lucky for us, the storyteller was Mr. Binder. He engaged the students in his dynamic way…. the students were hooked"
–American School of Paris

"I found Mr. Binder professional, responsive and flexible. He helped us tailor a day of activities that specifically addressed our building needs and curriculum goals. He devoted the entire school day to our students, only taking a thirty minute break for lunch. Without a doubt, we ‘got our money’s worth.’"
–Durgee Junior High School
