Tool # 7
Obective: TSW read and analyze poetry features by reading different types of poetry. Implementation: This project will be implemented Spring 2013 Tools: Wallwisher, Google Docs, Skype, Edmodo and Storybird Project Plan: Students will read and respond to poetry during reading workshop using Wallwisher via the student netbooks and Ipads. For homework, instead of their normal 20 minutes of reading, the students will read and respond to poetry posted on our class Edmodo site, respond to target question, such as "Is this a lyrical or narrative poem?"Why?, as well as other more specific questions concerning alliteration, personification, similes and metaphors used, etc. During class time, students can begin creating poetry and revising poetry and revising poetry in small groups using their Google Docs accounts and we can share and revise with other classrooms using Skype. In the end, students will be able to create their own poetry using our Storybird account in which they can create lyrical or narrative poems of their won to publish and share with the class. Collaboration: Most teachers at FWE teaches poetry; therefore, we will collaborate vertically across grade levels or within our own grade level.
