Abstract

This paper reports findings and offers implications from an evaluation of digital story methods in fostering critical thinking aptitude amongst junior and senior English students at an urban, mid-sized HBCU. Research participants consisted of students registered in a seminar on African-American literature genres, ranging from the first arrival of African slaves in the United States, through the slavery and Harlem Renaissance movements, and culminating with the Civil Rights Movement. Additionally, critical thinking was assessed through a combination of in-class quizzes, written literary analyses of required readings, and a formal research paper. Assessment and implications of the impact of the digital story technique on each critical thinking measure in the course and the student’s overall success are discussed.
