During Literacy Forsyth’s recent digital storytelling camp, 10 students learning English as a second language got to tell their own stories. The children worked on a short video throughout the weeklong camp, writing narration to tell a story about a moment in their lives that changed their view of the world. One exercise asked the campers to list qualities that described them and a sentence about who they wanted to be.
