Recording Their Personal Stories

The students have been furiously working on editing their personal stories.  Last Friday they came to the library to begin recording each section, and many of them made some interesting discoveries.  I've told them repeatedly that the best way to find their writing mistakes is to hear them..  As they began to record their first entry, many students came to me to say they needed to do some rewriting because their writing "doesn't make sense."  They will be doing some more editing.
My goal is for the students to spend the next few weeks recording all of their narratives, so that they can then begin to put their digital books together making their writing, audio, and photos into an ePub.
I hope all goes well.  I'll keep you posted.
