I use this creative assignment after reading Rime of the Ancient Mariner. There are four different choices for students to demonstrate their understanding of the poem in creative ways. The different choices allow students to choose an assignment where they feel they can best use their talents. One of the assignments is a group assignment. The second and third assignments can be done as a group or solo. The fourth is a solo assignment. TEACHING DURATION: I typically give students one to two class periods to prepare their assignments. This is an engaging cooperative learning activity that I have found my students repond to very well. I am always impressed with their final work product.
