Poetry To My Ears

Students investigate the 50 States Quarters Program. They use the state of Idaho as a basis for creating context for the lesson. The image on the coin becomes the subject. They differentiate between the reverse and obverse side of the coin. They conduct research into objects found on the coin and read poetry related to them.

After 28 years of teaching English, I signed up to teach grade nine art. My school only has 15 teachers and the students were losing out on opportunities to explore their creativity. Having access to the lessons on Lesson Planet has helped me to cover the curriculum while having fun with all the different ways of teaching the subject. To say this site is a blessing is an understatement!
