Jenny. M. Castillo (Curriculum and Teaching) published “Addressing the Literacy Practices of Gifted and Talented Young Learners in the Foreign Language Classroom through Digital Stories” in the Language Association Journal. This article examines the effectiveness of digital stories in enhancing the literacy practices of gifted and talented learners at the secondary level. It focuses on an in-depth study of an Interactive Model Approach of the three modes of communication (interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational) in its desire to address the writing needs, interests, and learning styles of gifted young learners in their Spanish class through the implementation of such digital platforms. Strategies for teaching writing in the target language, specifically Spanish, in a natural and flowing way and venues to increase the writing effectiveness in the content area are analyzed in detail.
