Read It, Write It, Tell It is a set of eight digital storytelling videos and supporting materials that will help students with the English Language Arts Literary Text areas of the Ohio Academic Achievement tests for grades 3-7. This multimedia project was funded by a grant from eTech Ohio and was produced by the WOUB Center for Public Media with input from ETSEO (Educational Technology of Southeastern Ohio).

Read It, Write It, Tell It is designed for use in a classroom setting. Instructors may use the programs in sequence or individually. Students may watch the programs on their own.

The digital storytelling programs are used as stepping-stones to focus students on the English Language Arts Literary Text benchmarks of the Ohio Academic Content Reading Standards: character development, plot, point of view, theme, genre, mood and figurative language.

The supporting print and internet resources provide information, activities and additional resources.

This episode is about the famous 19th century author, Harriet Beecher Stowe, who lived in Ohio for 18 years before the Civil War. In the tall tale portion of the episode, Harriet's book Uncle Tom's Cabin grows arms and legs and comes to life when it is faced with being revised. Abraham Lincoln helps to capture and subdue the unruly book.
