Reflection: Intrinsic Motivation Poetry: Cinquain - Section 3: Sharing Out


Students worked well together creating their Cinquains.  Having partners to work with as well as sampleas and templates guided students to focus on the form and structure of the Cinquain.  Therefore, there was less thinking about the structure and form and more about exploring creative ideas.  It is true that two heads are better than one.  Having a partner to give feedback is essential.
