Present Me Poetry Project

The Present Me Digital Poetry Project is a great way to engage your students by using technology and allowing them to choose the poem that they’ll use in order to create a video!

Students will choose their own poem for this high-interest video poetry project. Once they’ve selected the poem, students will then create a slides presentation featuring the title, author or poet, the lines of the poem, and images illustrating the poem’s meaning. An example illustrated slide presentation featuring “Mother to Son” by Langston Hughes is included as a model.

After completing the slide presentation, students will also analyze their poem by using an included poetry analysis template.

Using the Present Me free Chrome Store Web App or by using the Present Me user-friendly website, students will upload their poetry slide presentation and create a video of themselves reading their poems.

The final result is video with an amazing split-screen effect that your students will love. So will you!

Create and Illustrate an Identity Poetry eBook

Express yourself with this fun and modern poetry project! Students will first select and write two Identity Poems based on three poetry writing prompts with supporting examples.

Using their poems to generate a word list, students will then create word clouds about themselves using the dynamic free website Word Art. Word Art works on any device or computer. All you need is access to Google Chrome!

Selecting either a symbolic shape or using a personal photo, students will create a beautiful rich work of art that provides a visual reflection of who they are!

As the final step to this project, students will use Google Slides to feature their word art, create a unique eBook cover, feature self-representative photos and images, and to highlight their composed identity poems.

Picture It! Poetry Writing Based on a Digital Image

Ready to inspire your students?

The handouts and student activities for Picture This! Poetry Based on Digital Images utilizes the PicLits website, their interactive writing tool, and an extensive scrolling image gallery.

What is PicLits? is an interactive, creative writing site that matches beautiful images with carefully selected keywords in order to inspire you. The object is to put the right words in the right place and the right order to capture the essence, story, and meaning of the picture.

The writing assignments and supplemental handouts are a great way to increase visual literacy and will motivate even the most reluctant learners to write amazing poetry.

Each project in this dynamic bundle includes student examples, student handouts and specific directions, an implementation guide, and teacher grading rubrics.
