The project's Content objective: TLW read and analyze different types of poetry, discovering its features. When you plan to implement: Spring 2013 What tool(s) you plan to use: Wallwisher, Google Docs, Skype, Storybird, Edmodo A brief description of the project: Students will read and respond to poetry during reading workshop time using Wallwisher via the student netbooks and iPads. For homework, in loo of their normal 20 minutes of reading, the students will read & respond to poetry posted on our class Edmodo site, respond to target questions, such as "Is this a lyrical or narrative poem? Why?", as well as other more specific questions concerning alliteration, personification, similes & metaphors used, etc. During classtime, students can begin creating poetry and revising poetry in small groups using their Google Docs accounts and we can share & revise with other classrooms using Skype. In the end, students will be able to created their own poetry using our Storybird account in which they can create lyrical or narrative poems of their own to publish & share with the class. Collaboration: All third grade FWE classrooms teach poetry; therefore, we will collaborate vertically across grade levels or within our own grade level.
