Are you teaching poetry and want to dive into an ancient Japanese style? The Tanka poem is your answer; it is a lot of fun and this PowerPoint is an excellent way to deliver your lesson.
This project challenges students to create four poems using the tanka's specific criteria. Topics are given (but can be customized to your liking). Not only does the project challenge students to write, it also challenge them to accompany each poem with five visual art images that enhance the reading experience.
This is a great assignment for classrooms that have one-to-one technology, be it computers or tablets.
This PowerPoint is 100% customizable to fit your exact needs.
This should be all you need to get the best from your students.
