Clips and Poetry

I have been doing this project with my students for a few years, and they always enjoy it. I wanted to make the poetry come to life, and in the past I had the students use Keynote to visualize a poem as they read it. But I discovered how Clips can transform how a student interprets a verse.

The benefits of using Clips:

- Can include pictures and/or video

- Live titles is an excellent accessibility tool for students with hearing issues

- Soundtrack can change the feel of the poem. Music can help the students in their interpretation of the poem.

- Narration of the poem

Clips is an easy and powerful tool, making the poetry units fun and enjoyable for the students.

This is a sample project from a group of my students. The poem is by Jacqueline Woodson.

Such a sweet poem. I always planned to do a color poem with Clips, but never got to do it with students. Super use of Clips.
