I wrote a book for my two dogs, Frank and Beans using Story Jumper. This site is really user friendly and can be used at every age level. There is only so much that can be done within it, but having guidelines for an assignment would make this project a lot more interesting. I could see middle school and high school students feeling like this site is juvenile and that they are too old for this resource. However, I am 21 and was really impressed by all the cool props and sets that you could use on the free trial subscription within the site.
This site asks students to create something and therefor is guiding students toward higher order thinking skills, because after all students have to have the skills prior to being able to create and reflect on the material/ subject matter being discussed. The site also has a “library” of books to choose from based on your interest that you can buy if you so choose, but have online access to. You can also buy the rights to your own story books to be able to get them printed. Overall a good resource and tool for younger students maybe elementary age.
