Making a Digital Story

Each curriculum is a complete resource for making Immigrant Stories in the classroom or a public workshop. They contain schedules, lesson plans, worksheets, a gradic rubric, and written instructions that correspond with the website’s tutorial videos.

Learning About Immigration

The digital stories in the Immigrant Stories collection are important primary sources for teaching and learning about immigration. We worked with the Advocates for Human Rights to create this curriculum for grade 8-adult learners. The units address 1) the many, complex reasons people immigrate to the U.S.; 2) refugee experiences, past and present. This curriculum contains lessons plans, fact sheets, worksheets, and classroom activities.

Making Digital Stories (First Edition)

Before we launched our story-making website, we developed guides to make Immigrant Stories in college classes and public workshops. They teach participants to make their digital stories using free audio and video editing programs.
