Building Confidence and Competency in Grade 3 Boys: The Effects of Digital Storytelling

  • Boys and Stories (2018-19)

Recognizing an identified and direct correlation between student achievement and selfconfidence,
I focused my action research on the potential impact the integration of digital
storytelling tools had on boys in my Third Grade reading group. In an attempt to build both
their self-confidence and competency, the boys explored a variety of digital tools allowing for a
more creative approach to storytelling, while also alleviating the stressors often present with
traditional pencil-to-paper writing.
