Intentional Creativity to Spark Engagement (Blackout Poetry, #BookSnaps, Interactive Flipbook)
Date & Time
Sunday, April 29, 2018, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Giving students the opportunity to demonstrate creative thinking and learning not only instills excitement and interest in a class, but also helps students become more engaged. In this session, I will discuss various creative strategies to help engage your students -- Blackout Poetry, #BookSnaps, Interactive Flipbook (digital and paper versions). I will also share resources and examples of student created blackout poems (digital and paper examples). -Words: we use them in ALL content areas! Blackout poetry provides students a fun and unique way to play with language. Blackout poetry does not have to be actual poetry, but instead is a way for students to delve deeper into critical thinking and reading in any subject across grade levels! -#BookSnaps are an engaging way for students to create meaningful annotations of any text (book, article, magazine, textbook, song, poem, etc.) using words, hashtags, and images. -Interactive Flipbooks (digital and paper) keep all assignments for a given unit in one place while also keeping student work organized.
