    • A good digital story…
      In small groups, talk about the digital stories we’ve seen. As a group, write down 3 or 4 things that describe a good digital story.
      …isn’t too long.
      …has an interesting topic and a clear focus.
       
      …is narrated in a clear, loud voice.
       
      …has interesting pictures that match the story.
       
      ...doesn’t have too much unnecessary information.
       
      …often includes the storyteller’s feelings and emotions.
       
      …is from the heart.
    • When you shared your meaningful item with your classmates on Tuesday, you spoke from the heart!
    • Mind Map: What’s my story?
      Think about words that describe who you are. Create a ‘map’ that shows different things about you.
      buying a house
      becoming a mom
      coming to Canada
      How can I keep my children healthy and happy?
      Will I find a job soon?
      Don’t forget to think about your past, present, and future!
    • Choosing a topic and a focus for your story
      Use page 3 of your project workbook to help you choose a topic and a focus for your digital story.
      You can work on the workbook questions with a partner, or you can work by yourself.
      If you need help, ask a classmate or Sara!
