Poetry Analysis Project

Miss Tubbs, high school English teacher, came to me with an idea for using a digital tool as a means for students to analyze poetry.  I offered three different tools that I felt would engage students so that they could be creative while interpreting poetry.

The following paragraph is Miss Tubbs' wonderful, enlightening reflection of the process.

Here are some samples from the poetry analysis project.  Students chose different poems to analyze.  They had to find a theme in the poem and use three categories of poetic techniques to explain how those techniques created the theme.  While students liked Haiku deck, Smore and Thinglink worked better for this project because they were able to write using complete sentences and be more thorough in their explanations.

Thank you to Miss Tubbs for sharing her reflection and some fantastic student creations!
