Objective: TLW read and analyze features of poetry by reading different types of poetry posted on-line and with input from students in other classes.
Implementation: This project will be attempted this school year.
Tools: Wallwisher, Google Docs and Edmodo.
Plan: We would begin by posting a poem on Wallwisher after a lesson and kids practice providing input. Teacher guides their post-its and thoughts and uses this as guided practice to establish expectations while kids are using Edmodo. Students will read and respond to poetry posted on Edmodo by the teacher. They will be able to view other students' input and do this as part of their homework. They would identify the type of poem and identify elements such as similes, metaphors, personification, and alliteration. They could also answer the 3 O'Flahaven questions - what is happening, what does it mean, and what is the author's message. Kids could create their poetry on Google Docs to get each others' input and advice.
Collaboration: Within my grade level.
