  • 1. Logo Goal Following research-based practices linking literacy development with content area understanding, the goal of Vocabulary Digital Stories is to bridge the conceptual gap between content area vocabulary and story elements. Vocabulary Digital Storytelling in Content Area Classrooms Dr. Susan J. Wegmann, Chair, Teacher Education Division, Director of Institutional Research The Baptist College of Florida Vocabulary Digital Storytelling • Using robust vocabulary instruction (Beck, McKeown, & Kucan, 2013) to couch content area vocabulary terms within a story in order to create natural transfer to familiar concepts. • Creating narrative or nonfiction projects to highlight content area words as tools (Nagy & Townsend, 2013). • Linking content area vocabulary terms in new ways (Schleppegrell, 2013), to support learning. • Bloom’s Digital taxonomy suggests that “Creation” is at the apex of thinking. Add a picture or graph here Created by Sarah Ford Significance • Use of vocabulary terms in creative ways helps student learning (Kissel, Wood, Hientschel, 2013). • Writing sustains & informs reading (Shannahan, 2006). • Multimodal projects provide a foundation for understanding.
