Using digital storytelling to capture immigration stories is a powerful way for teachers to create opportunities for “empathetic moments.” Telling stories of family immigration history allows for common threads and variations of the immigration experience to be seen, heard, and reflected upon. In this plan, teachers are guided step-by-step through a process for launching a digital storytelling project on immigration in their own classrooms. Recommended writing prompts, easy to use digital platforms, as well as resources and collaborative tools are shared and explained.
