Using Animation to Engage Students in Narratives
Leading up to NAPLAN testing, the narrative genre becomes a major focus – for obvious reasons! To try and reach all students, this slideshow (made by Craig Snudden of NSW) can assist the teacher to engage even the most reluctant of writers by providing the links to many resources for using animation to engage students in narratives.
Perhaps one of the most valuable links within the slideshow is www.teachanimation.org The Teach Animation site is organised around three major themes: projects, processes and pedagogies. As if these three areas of the site are not enough, the site also includes a links page that has an extremely comprehensive list of resources.
