Students in Mrs. Schneider’s 9th grade English class are currently exploring a variety of American poets during Poetry Month. Students are researching poets, reading selected poetry, and writing in their style while they investigate answers to the following questions: what is poetry? how do author’s choices create meaning?
Students are creating websites archiving their favorite poets and their own original poetry, artwork, and photography. The project will culminate in a Quicktime screencast tour of their website where they answer the question (what is poetry) and reflect on how THEIR choices create meaning. As an extension activity, students will have the opportunity to animate their original poetry using a digital storytelling tool.
