Laurie Scarpelli

Through Music and Digital Storytelling to Support Literacy, Mrs. Scarpelli and Mrs. Rakoczy will teach students to create digital stories with animation and eBooks applications on the iPad2. Using a nursery rhyme framework, each digital story will include pictures, written text, student-performed piano accompaniment, and sung text. The resulting eBooks will be shared with younger students to promote a greater interest in both reading and music.
