I’ll be teaching two World History classes to English Language Learners next year, so I’m keeping my eyes open for online sites that I can use.  One thing I’ve done is make a World History page.

I’ve also found two sites that allow students to create their own stories and make versions of the famous Bayeux Tapestry, which tells the story of the Battle of Hastings in Great Britain.  Both links allow students to tell their stories in text and pictures, which can then be accessed online.

One is the Historic Tale Reconstruction Kit and the other is the Bayeux Tapestry Interactive.  You can find both on my Examples of Student Work page under Student Historic Tales.

Both of these activities can also be used effectively by English Language Learners even if you’re not teaching World History.   The Historic Tale Reconstruction Kit in particular would be easy to use by English Language Learners to tell any kind of story they want.
