Digital Storytelling for ELL students
Digital storytelling is an innovative tool for ELL students to employ as part of an effective English language learning activity. It allows instructors to serve a broad spectrum of grade levels with a disparate assortment of academic needs while allowing students to collaborate as part of a team effort. Combining 21st century computer skills with a literacy activity is embraced by students.
Teachers are encouraged to have students review the science curriculum on the English for Your Future web site and create a video documentary or story that reinforces those scientific concepts. Students should include both English and Spanish subtitles so they can demonstrate their language acquisition skills.
