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
The Lion King “Hakuna Matata”
How to survive on bugs
I also showed a clip on Peter Parker learning to shoot webs.
Students will be working on this digital essay for the next three weeks.
