Reflection: Student Feedback The Freedom of Free Verse Poetry - Section 4: Individual Project


I teach in a dual immersion program and have a morning class and and afternoon class.  I teach the same lessons to both classes.  It is so interesting to me the different personalities in the different groups.  In the morning class, the kids were excited for the freedom of free verse.  They were glad to be free from the strict rules that some of the poems follow.  The afternoon class was completely opposite, they kept wanting me to give them a set amount of lines or syllables.  They wanted to have a rhyme pattern.  It is quite interesting teaching the same lessons twice.  They never are the same the second time.  :)
