On this episode of TTT, we are joined by Troy Hicks, author of the new Heinemann book, Crafting Digital Writing Workshop: Composing Texts Across Media and Genres, and three of the teachers who Troy features in the book.
Troy Hicks is the Director of the Chippewa River Writing Project at Central Michigan University and this is the first of a two-part series exploring the principles and practices described in his new book.
For this first episode, we welcome three teachers from the book to describe how they approach the craft of digital writing with audio, video, and other multimedia tools.
Elana Waugh, Bath Elementary School, explains how her students used mixed media to create a digital book project.
Lindsay Stoetzel, a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, describes how she used podcasts with her middle school students.
Dawn Reed, Okemos High School, discusses the ways that her students use digital video to construct arguments.
