My Students

I have always loved to create stories, and my students do as well! It is exciting seeing their eyes light up when they understand a concept that we have been investigating in class and one of the best ways to learn is by telling a story.

My students love learning new things through using technology to create and tell stories!

One thing I learned long ago is that if you want to engage your students, start by telling them a story. Stories have been used throughout our history in helping people understand the world around them. A good story can bring a person to tears, make them laugh, and build empathy. I have found that my students really love to learn through stories and what's even better is that they like to create stories as well.

My Project

Storytelling is soft skill that all students need to develop. Inherently we are more engaged when we are told a story. My students love to tell stories about what they are learning in my History class.

My students would love to have the opportunity to use the Lego Fantasy Mini-figure sets to create unique scenes that will enhance their Digital Storytelling Projects.

Please help their dreams come true by funding this project. Soft skills are one of the main things that employers are looking for and by helping make our project a reality you will be helping my students develop a solid foundation of soft skills.
