Sharing stories is a wonderful skill for any student to have. It's important to let students know they have a voice and it deserves to be heard. Digitial media is a wonderful way to share and participate in stories if done responsibly. Through this lesson, students will grasp an understanding in how to create their own digital story from brainstorming with their peers to sharing the final project with them. They will learn how to pitch their ideas, develop a storyboard, learn what materials they may use when creating their video under the fair use act, basic importing and editing abilities, and how to give constructive feedback.

An additional class period should be added to finish, revise, edit, and share their projects within small groups. This plan is for high school grade levels.
