Pragmatic Poetry

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Project-based learning shifts the emphasis from teacher-centered to student-centered, making learning more relevant. Unit-culminating multimedia poetry projects, allow students to use their knowledge of poetic devices, figurative language, mood, tone, and theme to create presentations that reflect their unique creativity through the use of multimedia technology in the research, planning and presentation of projects.

We developed the idea for these projects by examining how some advertisers are currently utilizing poetry in TV commercials. Our students were given the choice to develop either a commercial, PSA, or identity video that sold an idea, encouraged a positive character trait, or highlighted personal qualities of the unique individual. The projects had to reflect the proper use of tone, project a central theme, and incorporate the use of video, images, music, poetry, and voice-over to "sell" their ideas.

There are numerous ELA Standards that align with this multimedia project: RL 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10
SL 1, 2, 4, 5, 6
L 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
W 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10
