Although we believe that students need to develop the skills necessary to prepare a thoughtful, well-written, inquiry-driven research paper, our students have many other engaging product options. They can acquire subject knowledge and develop transferable information literacy and technology skills through a variety of creative activities. The following is a list of some alternative assessments for your class. For any research product or response to literature, consider how we might offer video, digital storytelling and publishing, art, drama, or presentation as an option for students to creatively communicate/share/publish/broadcast the knowledge they have gained.

7 Essentials to a Memorable, Shareable, Retellable Story

7 Essentials to a Memorable, Shareable, Retellable Story | Litteris | Scoop.it

Retellable stories - they’re the things we remember!

"Because for all the massive investment of time and money in social media in the past 10 years, we’ve invested much less in the original social media: the stories we tell and retell, person-to-person, in interviews, in cafes and restaurants, and in meetings. This social media is at the foundation of our relationships, and at the foundation of our organizations."

 

Read the full article to find out more about these seven simple steps to make your stories retellable:

1. Commit to the journey

2. Use sensory details

3. Move through your problem

4. Spark suspense

5. Hone in on what changed

6. Land your meaning

7. Take five

What is a Natural Storyteller? | Litteris | Scoop.it

"You know that feeling, when you can’t wait to get home to tell your significant other about the crazy thing that just happened at work? The second you walk through the door, even before you kick off your pinchy-toe shoes, you’re saying, “You’re not going to believe this . . .” as you launch into the story, complete with revealing hand gestures, passion, and well timed pauses that effortlessly build to the riveting climax."

Anyone who knows me knows that I love telling stories. (Usually more than once.) The above excerpt essentially describes every single day of my life. Sharing life experiences with people who mean something to me is what makes these experiences that much more exciting.

I am a Realtor not a writer. I still have to use the story in both pictures and words to tell the story of a home I am selling. It is true a picture is worth a thousand words and together a picture and a caption should be not just information but a story. Call me. I can show you the difference.

Storytelling: Why, How and the Secrets needed to Weave Magic

Storytelling: Why, How and the Secrets needed to Weave Magic | Litteris | Scoop.it

"Storytelling is a folk art that has been passed down from generation to generation. At its best storytelling can hold a village enthralled and can spark goose bumps in the most sceptical of adults. For all that we have gained from modern media we have lost something in our collective ability to tell tales and entertain each other using only our voices and our imagination. Nowhere is this loss sadder than in our relationship to the children closest to us. Children learn so much from being told stories and they develop skills that they will use throughout their lifetime. The following is just a short list of the benefits of telling stories to children:"

How to build a story – The basics

 

1. Include the children themselves.2. Involve favourite teddies or pets.3. Locate the story in places the children know well (home, park school) or exotic locations they have heard of (jungle, under the ocean, polar regions etc).4. Re-work the children’s favourite books. This will use a known starting point that will engage your child immediately. Build on stories you have created before and expand them to new locations or introduce new characters.5. Use lots of ‘sound effects’ – creaking doors, thumping footsteps and boinging springs are favourites in our house.6. Use actions and gestures – knocking on doors, waving goodbye, clapping hands (bang!). This will keep your child active and interested.7. Don’t over complicate it: Most stories involve large amounts of repetition and often include three of something (3 children, 3 locations). For a basic template think of the fairy tales we tell children when they are little.8. Ask questions at key points to punctuate the story (e.g. ‘and how do you think he responded?’). Storytelling is an interactive medium – get your child involved.9. Use voices for characters and use volume within the story. It’s always fun to whisper parts to make the children crane forward to hear what will happen next. Shouting boisterous parts will also ensure you keep their attention.10. Use comedy: And remember what is likely to be considered funny for your audience. This is likely to be goo, pants, people falling over, adults looking silly and anything involving most bodily functions.

Elements of Compelling Video Storytelling

Elements of Compelling Video Storytelling | Litteris | Scoop.it

"Once upon a time, public relations professionals only considered using video for major national stories ­– a video news release.

 

But over the past several years, in the throes of a slow and rather quiet death, print media has moved past obsolete into antiquated, and video media has surged forward to replace it.

 

Internet video channels and the phenomenon of “viral” status has rendered video an essential element in successful national-level business storytelling. This is evident in Forbes, the Wall Street Journal and Inc."

The Need For Story

The Need For Story | Litteris | Scoop.it

Kahneman continues by explaining that we can think of our brains having two controlling systems, an intuitive system and a rational system. The intuitive system is fast, quick to make judgement and  desperate to make a complete story to tell the slower, heavier processing rational system. It seems we have a general tendency to favour  the intuitive system and only when this fails to make sense of what we see we use the rational system. In order to keep us processing quickly we use little stories, well-known to us that are similar to the experience at hand. Even when we do not have a complete picture this system will create a story so convincing that we feel that it is real so that our rational system is convinced it doesn’t need to engage. This is why we feel so many situations are familiar. This is why we need stories.

"That’s what makes stories matter: when you read or watch or hear a story about a total stranger, in a completely different world, and you recognize that story as your own.

Stories connect us as human beings. In fact, they’re part of what MAKES us human beings.


Of course, I’ve oversimplified a lot here today. Most good stories are dense and complicated, with many characters and lots of obstacles and elusive goals. Sometimes they jump around in time and space. Sometimes it’s hard to figure out what they’re really about."

Visual Storytelling: The Key Weapon to Content Marketing

Visual Storytelling: The Key Weapon to Content Marketing | Litteris | Scoop.it

"Thanks to social networks, we’ve naturally been driven to a host of metrics that include attributes of “engagement” and conversations shared online."

 

"This, in turn, has fueled the content marketing race – and ultimately, the quest for producing what is most relevant or valuable to a company’s current and prospective customers."

 

"As we compete in this context to draw attention for our brand and offerings, perhaps one element has remained constant above all others: the power of visual storytelling."
