Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Haikus- The Nature Poem - Section 3: Student Share


This lesson was successful because of the high level of student engagement and excitement for writing Haikus.   I was impressed how one student remembered reading the book Naya Nuki, by Ken Thomasma, and based her Haiku on her understanding of native peoples' life long ago.  The students' Haikus were on a wide range of topics.  They used numerous generating strategies; looking out the window, looking around at realia in the classroom, thinking about their own memories, and using ideas from books they had read.  Of course, the mentor poems were helpful as well.
