Have you ever been to Storybird.com? It’s amazing! It’s an online tool that assists in the creation of stories. It’s great for educators, and in the screen-cast and sample assignment below, I outline how someone might use this website in the classroom. I decided that it would be a great idea to use this website for the narrative assignments that I use every year in my classroom. The assignment I focused on in both the screen-cast and the student sample is an assignment called “Time Lapse Narrative.” It is aligned with both HCPSS Reflections: Past to Present unit, and is aligned with Maryland Common Core Standard W3 for 9th and 10 grades. Even though I created the screen-cast for teachers, and would use it in a PD or meeting, I could also show it to my students. I clearly shows them what I see as an educator, so no funny business, and the basics on how to use the website. I hope you enjoy my screen-cast and student sample!!!
