And the winner is...:Poetry and Film

This And the winner is...:Poetry and Film lesson plan also includes:

Films use famous and important poems to enhance the themes and conflicts of the art, but are the poems as recognized as the films that are used? Of course not! You can change that with this plan and its accompanying activities. Young poets view a clip from Dead Poets Society, and discuss the use of “Oh Captain, My Captain!” in the film. From there learners are grouped up and are given a poem for analysis that has been used in a film. The final movement challenges learners to develop a short film that displays the importance of the poem they analyzed in their groups. If you find that the poems chosen for this project are not appropriate for your class, select poems that are reflective of your students' taste or interests.
