This year, we will dig deeper into different types of poetry, and explore them as both readers and writers. Students will understand that poetry is a powerful art form for expressing emotion, ideas, and vivid imagery. We will integrate the creative arts into our Life Science lessons. Perfect for science, poetry challenges students to synthesize their ideas with powerful vocabulary and description. As we build a class set of Chromebooks, students will be able to take turns to create and edit their own poetry on Google Docs! They will collaborate on their work, and provide constructive criticism right on the computer, and research new topics and poets. They will publish their poetry and illustrate it with different media, to display publicly, and to bind in their own poetry portfolios in Google Classroom. This develops their writing ability, artistic creativity, and their technological skills. My goal is to assemble a class set for all students to be able to work on their projects at the same time.
