How about digital storytelling? Students can retell a classic tale, update it, or tell about their community and share with the world. Some resources and lesson plans are available at ePals, in Focus Area: Storytelling and in Project: Digital Storytelling.
You do not have to "join" to use the lesson plans or resources, or to view the work that other students have posted. To post your students' products for others to view, you would have to have a free ePals account. You can "join" at www.epals.com.
Hi Yvonne. I was wondering if any of your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some other educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
