Each of the 48 events has an eye-catching cartoon drawing that tells the "Big Picture" of what happened in that event.
This drawing captures what happened to the French Acadian people when they were expelled from their land. The visual learners love to; look at, color, make political cartoons and discuss the drawings.
A headline caption called a "keyword" is spoken for each event. Auditory learners not only learn by hearing, but reinforce their learning by speaking. History Tellers "speaks" the 48 events, that's why it's called the "Talking Timeline".
Each event is dramatized through a simple hand action. The Kinesthetic learner loves to be on the move. History Tellers' unique method of teaching incorporates this style of learning.
