Create a Video Poem

Collaborate to create a visual version of a poem using video. Before class, choose a poem to pick apart. Read it aloud and then analyze it in detail as a class. Assign a line or short section to each student to expand upon using a graphic organizer. Next, learners choose an image to go with their line. All of this work put together becomes the visual poem, which incorporates every individual's work. The lesson suggests a specific editing program, but you could do this using a variety of different programs, or even by printing out images and lines.
