Thanks for sharing this idea for bringing poetry to life, Brian. I love the way music can help us explore tone and mood in a piece of writing, and the pictures students use give us clues to the imagery they're noticing in the poem. Love this activity and the student-created example you provided!
Bring poetry to life with Clips
I have been doing this project with my students for a few years now, 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 the poem. But I discovered how Clips can transform how a student interprets a poem.
The benefits of using Clips:
- Can include pictures and/or video
- Live titles is a great 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, and it makes 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.
Love this - Clips is one of my favourite apps, suits all ages (even teachers!).
I ❤️how this project could work in lots of apps, but what really brings it to life is Clips. So many ways for students to personalize and express their ideas. But for me, it's the use of Live Titles FTW! 🙌🏻
Thanks for sharing, Brian!
Brian, I love this use of Clips. Such a powerful and engaging way for students to engage with literacy. Thank you for sharing.
This is a great way to engage those who are reluctant to use technology. It encompasses current activities but brings creativity and is great work for work flow.
