My new book, Storytelling With Purpose, arrives this week!


cover of the book, Storytelling With Purpose
The wait for my book is over: The ebook version becomes available for purchase this week!

It's been almost two years since I started writing this guide for educators, and I'm excited to finally share what I think are some great solutions to issues teachers face in the classroom right now--and bring joy and purpose back to learning.

What you'll find in the book:

• Step-by-step road map for how to use digital story projects in every subject area and grade level

• How to use digital story projects as a way to assess students (including how to create #UncheatableAssessments)

• Leverage student curiosity & passion to increase engagement

• Case studies and student examples

• Quick Win projects you can use right away

• Insights and case studies from ADEs @karrinburns @Danryder @JodieDeinhammer @leahlacrosse

The print version comes out February 6th, but if you can't wait to start learning about #digitalstorytelling, grab a digital copy this week!

Woo hoo and congrats Michael!

I came across the ASCD podcast in Linkedin this last week - very inspiring! It certainly outlined your philosophy and was a great preview for your book. I’m looking forward to the digital version. I know I’ll garner a lot of ideas from your impressive work.
