I’ve spent the day today at Asher Public School in Asher, Oklahoma, working with all 5th through 12th grade students on digital storytelling using VoiceThread. We created six different VoiceThread digital stories together today as part of the Great Book Stories Project. Five of these are linked from the “Listen and See” page of the project wiki. One more (about “Where the Red Fern Grows”) is not linked yet, as the librarian is still waiting for some students to return their parent permission forms to participate in the project and publish their voice on the Internet. (A sample permission form in MS Word format which you are free to modify and use as desired is available on the project guidelines page.) Here are the five digital stories about “favorite books” the students in Asher created today:
To Kill a Mockingbird (10th graders in Asher, Oklahoma)
The Case of the Disappearing Daughter (5th grader in Asher, Oklahoma)
The Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allen Poe (9th graders in Asher, Oklahoma)
Milkweed by Jerry Spinelli (8th grade boys in Asher, Oklahoma)
The Outsiders (11th and 12th grade students in Asher, Oklahoma)
The Great Books Project is open to anyone, worldwide, who would like to use these ideas, use any of the project resources, and contribute digital stories. 🙂
