Teaching a Literacy Digital Essay

In one of my fyc courses, the first essay they are composing is a digital essay on how they gained literacy in a particular area.

I showed several Disney clips as examples:
“I’ll Make a Man Out of You” from Mulan

?Finding Nemo “I Speak Whale”

The Lion King “Hakuna Matata”
How to survive on bugs

I also showed a clip on Peter Parker learning to shoot webs.

There were a couple of other clips for audience:
One Man Band by Pixar
Chipotle Scarecrow
Chipotle Scarecrow parody

Students will be working on this digital essay for the next three weeks.

Here is Digital Literacy Essay Prompt and the calendar.

  1. Dear Dr. Davis,

    I am a new FYC instructor, and I’m very interested in incorporating media into my classes.

    I’m very curious what the digital essay assignment consisted of and how you incorporated the Disney clips into the lesson plan and essay and would love to learn more.

    Thank you!
