    Story Pirates actor Peter McNerney, left, waits offstage for his cue during an "Idea Storm" at Little Falls Township Public School number 2, in Little Falls, New Jersey, Friday, January 13, 2012.  During the Idea Storm, the Story Pirates teach children the fundamentals of storytelling,  first by discussing the basic structure of a story and then asking for ideas from students.  Each time a student contributes an idea, the actors respond on the fly, incorporating it into an ongoing improvisational comedy sketch.  Emile Wamsteker for Education Week
