Welcome to The Teacher's Corner final, Online Collaboration Project for the 2016-2017 school year. The project is open to any K-12 classroom or homeschool and will run from April 1, 2017 - April 30, 2017.
Poetry provides students with power. The power to express their feelings, their point of view, demonstrate creativity, share their hopes & dreams, provide opinions, etc. Writing poetry can prove to be very motivational for students and less intimidating for some, as it allows them the freedom to "break" some of the writing rules. This project is meant to allow students to harness their power and share it with the world.
As you probably know, April is National Poetry Month. A number of teachers take advantage of this and often plan their poetry units around this time of year. In a typical poetry unit, students often publish one or more poems. The "Poetry Power" project will provide your students the opportunity to learn about various forms of poetry and a global audience with whom they can share their poetry.
This activity will include any necessary resources, worksheets and Internet links needed to complete the project.
Are you and your students ready to share the power of poetry? Register today!
