Explore digital stories online.  Use the Web site links listed at Digital Stories on the Web

When you find a digital story you like, copy and paste the URL (http://www....) into an email message you send to the instructors and type in the title of the digital story.

We will view the digital story you selected in class.  You will need to tell your classmates what you liked about the digital story and why you chose it. 

For example, did you like the message, the story, the images, the sound track, the effects, or what?  Also, tell what type or types of digital story it is:  personal story, character story, memorial story, adventure story, accomplishment story, story about a place,  work story, recovery story, love story, or discovery story.
