Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Tending To Our "Poet" Trees - Section 3: Independent Practice - Sowing The Seeds Of Our "Poet" Tree


Creative writing is turning over a new leaf in vocabulary building activities.  My students enjoyed the open-ended poetry lesson because they very rarely get the opportunity to express themselves through this genre in the science department. Due to the success of this activity, I plan on creating additional creative writing lessons this semester.  As I implement additional activities, I will integrate more specific learning objectives for each activity.  This creative writing lesson was open-ended since I was not sure what to expect for our first attempt in poetry in Biology class.  

The lesson was a success and I will try poetry again with this lesson!  Please check it out for more Common Core aligned lessons and attempting to get our students to write across the curriculum!
