Poetry Powerpoints

Students chose from among three poems, created Powerpoint presentations designed to accompany their interpreted readings, and performed the readings before the class (and videotaped).  This was the most popular technology integration project I supported while at Taconic Hills, and it was showcased by the superintendent to kick off the following district conference day.  This project hearkened back to work at the Institute for Learning Technologies in 1996, when students posted poems and recording readings developed with the Teachers and Writers Project in NYC.
