Home Stories From The Past

Another wrinkle on the tenement tale was done by Ms. Capic's class two years ago. Instead of working with the student cards as inspiration they constructed a narrative using the cues given by the actress playing the role of Victoria Confino. Again, where the story suggests images, those can be obtained from the Internet or scanned in. Adding an audio recording makes the project into a "living" book. The project has value as a stand alone, but it also has a second life as reading material for struggling de-coders or kids who just absorb knowledge more easily by listening.
