So, what to do after the story has been created and/or told?!?! One of the many things that Tina and Ben mention in their book is Textivate. I love Textivate! I have used it in the past as a way to review stories. I like it because it is easy differentiation and students can go at their own pace while reviewing stories.
So far in Spanish 1 (10 days of 85 minutes so far), I have used Textivate for our two OWIs (my first time doing this and I (and students) LOVE it!): Ricardo El Balón and Carla La Cuchara and for three stories based on music videos/songs. I used the Story Listening technique to tell these music-video-based-stories, then students watched the videos, then we did a variety of activities. See the links below for resources. (I am aware that I need to have some female representation!! Coming soon!)
For the first time this year, I bought the Premium subscription, which allows me to keep track of student progress. With this premium subscription, I can also set "sequences" of specific activities that students have to do. Students do these activities in class, in TASC (a special enrichment and/or extra help block we have every day), or for homework. I can also see how long the activities took each student and how accurate they were. Here is an example of what I can see (I have omitted the student names):
And here is an example of a the "Details":
