By meaningfully integrating personal narratives as well as textbook content into the curriculum, teachers promote academic- and self-efficacy, empowerment, and community-building opportunities in their classroom, and increase chances of student success. Including whole-person identities in the classroom allows the learning community to harmonize in its understanding and acceptance of cultural similarities and differences and to experience social change through awareness, perspective, empathy and deconstruction of assumptions. The Content-Related Digital Storytelling (CoRDS) model provides teachers with a pedagogical tool that works in concert with other subject matter approaches and allows students to access their analytical and creative faculties to demonstrate understanding or reveal gaps in their knowledge.
