Edmodo is currently down, so below are the descriptions of each of you project choices. Open each document and choose one project to complete. You will only have this week in class to work on these projects – they are due before break, so you will have to finish them at home. Do NOT choose a project that requires a computer and internet access to complete if you do not have these resources at home. Some projects are independent in nature and some of them allow for you to work in groups to complete, as indicated in the descriptions of each.

Online resources (including images of project examples) are available in the Virtual Courses under “PoetryProject” – read the list below, choose a project, and then either log in to the Virtual Courses, or collect your other materials from me:

 Project Choices – Choose and Complete One of the Following:

 1.     Create an “info-graphic” on one of the poets in the poetry book on poster board – this will require some research and some artistic ability.

2.     Create a comic strip on paper depicting one of the narrative poems in the poetry book or the Literature Textbook (The Highwayman, The Raven, or The Wreck of the Hesperus) – if you know of another narrative poem you would like to use, you must get approval from me first. This will require some artistic ability.

3.      Create an animated comic strip depicting one of the narrative poems in the poetry book or the Literature Textbook (The Highwayman, The Raven, or The Wreck of the Hesperus) – if you know of another narrative poem you would like to use, you must get approval from me first. (account on GoAnimate for schools provided)

4.     Create a Photostory movie or a Power Point presentation depicting one of the narrative poems in the poetry book or the Literature Textbook (The Highwayman, The Raven, or The Wreck of the Hesperus) – if you know of another narrative poem you would like to use, you must get approval from me first.

5.     Create a “Fauxbook” page for one of the poets in the poetry book – this will require some research. (PowerPoint template provided)

6.     Create a poster depicting each (one poster per type of figurative language) of the following:  simile, metaphor, personification, hyperbole, alliteration, and idiom. Blank paper, markers, colored pencils, and examples provided. This will require some artistic ability.

7.     Create a “Poetry Book” – write a minimum of 7 poems (at least one must be a narrative poem consisting of a minimum of 20 lines) and assemble them in book format, including cover, table of contents, and an “About the Author” page. Try to include at least three different types of poems (limerick, haiku, free verse, narrative, ballad, etc.)

*You may submit a project proposal for approval if you have an idea for a project that is not on the list.

Have fun!!
