Children Creating Multimodal Stories about a Familiar Environment
Kervin, Lisa; Mantei, Jessica
Reading Teacher, v70 n6 p721-728 May-Jun 2017
Storytelling is a practice that enables children to apply their literacy skills. This article shares a collaborative literacy strategy devised to enable children to create multimodal stories about their familiar school environment. The strategy uses resources, including the children's own drawings, images from Google Maps, and the Puppet Pals Director's Pass app, to leverage children's experiences in their school and community contexts for a meaningful and authentic literacy learning opportunity. The children use both paper-based materials and digital technologies to create multimodal stories. The process and work samples are provided to illustrate the strategy in practice.
