Discovering Our Narrative: Using Place-based Learning in the ELA Classroom

Over the last several years in my language arts classroom, I have noticed a steady decline in 6th graders’ abilities to communicate clearly using the speaking and listening skills necessary to be successful in their future endeavors in college and their careers. In order to address this problem, I plan to utilize technology to help enhance students’ communication skills to ensure that they will be successful and competitive in the 21st Century. Students will be engaged in our community collecting oral histories to be shared through our YouTube channel and in podcasts.
