Reflection: Student Ownership Picking Poems from Poetry Out Loud; Responding to Poetry Using the Cube Creator - Section 3: Using the Read, Write, Think Cube Creator

 

I have used Poetry Out Loud in both English and speech classes. In speech I emphasize analysis for oral presentations, and in English I'm more interested in written analysis, although I do help students see how reading orally affects their ability to understand a poem. 

The Cube Creator is a fun way for students to start deconstructing a poem, but some students rushed the project, others were careless w/ punctuation and usage. This is a problem, which I mentioned to students as they worked: "I notice that many of you aren't punctuating the title and aren't using capitalization when needed." I'll assess the cubes in part based on this carelessness.
