Have your students create a video poem without having to use a video camera and use countless days editing. This assignment can be used in English classes or creative writing classes. You could change the poem into quotes from a book with similar results. The idea is very simple, but the results are powerful.
You may notice more requirements in the assignment than in the exemplars, and that's because I revised the assignment after seeing the first year (the only ones available on Youtube). You can adjust the assignment to whatever requirements you want, of course.
As I say in the assignment, it's pretty cool to think that you and your students might be creating one of the only videos ever made for a certain poem (especially if it's one of their own).
