In the ClassroomUse the Poetry Idea Engine as a starting point to introduce the different poetry forms. Extend this further into creating poetry with other subjects in the given form. Start your own classroom collection to be shared digitally on your website. Exchange the physical whiteboad or chalkboard by creating a digital, collaborative board using a tool such as Lino, reviewed here, for the collection ideas. Extend classroom technology use in audio form, by creating podcasts using a site such as podOmatic, reviewed here, and then share them on your website. Add digital images and make a photo book of your favorite poems from your poetry unit using a tool such as Book Creator, reviewed here. Book Creator presents a variety of levels for technology use depending on teacher requirements for the project, or even student ability; it allows for adding narration, videos and links to help explain what certain parts of the poem are about. Save the poetry images/audio for your end of year remembrances to share with students and their families. The Poetry Idea Engine can provide concrete examples and success for ESL/ELL students as well as inspiration for gifted students.
