Animating Poetry: Reading Poems about the Natural World
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

The purpose of this project is two-fold: first, to encourage students to make the reading of poetry a creative act; and, second, to help students appreciate particular literary devices in their functions as semaphores or interpretive signals. Those devices that are about the imagery of a poem (metaphor, simile, personification, description) can be thought of as magnifying glasses: we see most clearly that upon which the poet focuses our gaze. Similarly, those poetic devices that are about the sound of the poem (alliteration, consonance, enjambment, onomatopoeia, and repetition) can be thought of as volume buttons or amplifiers: we hear most clearly what the poet makes us listen to most attentively.

Arabic Poetry: Guzzle a Ghazal!
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

The Bedouins of ancient Arabia and Persia made poetry a conversational art form. Several poetic forms developed from the participatory nature of tribal poetry. Today in most Arabic cultures, you may still experience public storytelling and spontaneous poetry challenges in the streets. The art of turning a rhyme into sly verbal sparring is considered a mark of intelligence and a badge of honor. Students will learn about the origins and structure of Arabic Poetry.

Art Speaks |  The Creative Corner
Unrestricted Use

Rating

Learn about visual and performing artists. They often use their creativity to raise their voices and share lessons, stories, and important ideas with the world. In this episode of The Creative Corner, two artists from Richmond, Virginia help us explore how art sparks crucial conversations. Public artist Hamilton Glass shares how (and why) he gathered a group of artists to paint murals with a message all across the city after some challenging current events, and musician Victor Haskins talks about storytelling as human nature — and why sound and performance tell stories so well. Then you’re invited to share your own voice through a poster project!

Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating

This activity is intended as an introduction to close-reading using visual media. In this lesson, students will review and then closely "read" the painting, "The Kiss" by Gustav Klimt in order to understand the process of close-reading and its impact on our understanding of texts. Once students have learned how to conduct close-reading of a visual text, they reflect on how they might transfer this skill to the written word.
This activity also includes optional extension activities that incorporate poetry into the lesson.

Use https://goopenva.org/courses/poems-that-tell-a-story-narrative-and-persona-in-the-poetry-of-robert-frost  and "Love that Dog" to break down POV in poetry. Have students pair up the famous work of Robert Frost with a novel that references the poem. This allows students to break down narrative poetry in multiple formats, and experience the storytelling aspect of poetry. I remixed this lesson to tie in a poetry novel that uses Robert Frost's poem. This lesson fit nicely with the material I use to teach the novel.

Students write poems using rhyme and meter as they come to understand the mechanical concept of rhythm, based on the principle of oscillation, in a broader biological and cultural context, as seen in dance and sports, poetry and other literary forms, and communication in general. Note: The literacy activities for the Mechanics unit are based on physical themes that have broad application to our experience in the world — concepts of rhythm, balance, spin, gravity, levity, inertia, momentum, friction, stress and tension.
