Our newest featured tool is My Storymaker from Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
About My Storymaker:
My Storymaker is a wonderful tool that will help students create their own story adventure. Students can use this tool to plan a story, where they can choose and insert characters, scenery, and objects.
A great way to use My Storymaker is to plan a lesson that focuses on the elements of a story. Students can review the characters, setting, problem, and solution in a story, then work to create their own story using the My Storymaker tool.

Another great feature available with this tool is the ability to print and save stories. Upon completion of a story, students will be issued a “magic code”. The code will allow them to view a previously created story from the library website.
Use this tool to plan library lessons and to collaborate with teachers at your school.
