Make Me a Story

Teaching Writing Through Digital Storytelling

"Just as writing can be a process of discovery, so can digital storytelling, where images, words, and music all work together to create meaning."

To Lisa Miller, a good digital story is all about the writing. In Make Me a Story, Lisa shows how to use digital stories to lead students through all phases of the writing process, from planning to revising and editing.
