Stories from Spanish 101 - Winter 2013

Students in SPAN 101, an elementary Spanish language class used digital storytelling to improve their language skills. The assignment was composed of two parts.

1. In a wiki, students (individually) write a letter to Juana, a student who has a fantastic apartment in which they want to live. In this letter, students explain to Juana (in Spanish) who they are, what they like to do and their daily routine.

2. For the digital story, students team up in groups of three to create a digital story. For the digital story, the students (a) use the content that they developed individually in the wiki, (b) combine their content with their teammates' content to make a coherent story.
