Developing Literate Identities with English Language Learners through Digital Storytelling
Reading Matrix: An International Online Journal Volume 8, Number 2, ISSN 1533-242X
Digital storytelling provides an opportunity for children and adolescents to design multimodal narratives that represent and reflect upon their lives and interests. In the article we look at how two English language learners, Diego, a male Mexican-American kindergartener, and Allie Feng, a female Chinese-American junior in high school, drew upon their sociocultural identities, foundational literacies practices, and new literacies competencies to design and present digital stories.
