Purpose for Poetry Videos

After a thorough background in poetry analysis, students offer their interpretation of poems, expressed in their voices with visual accompaniments. The project has evolved with our increased access to more and better technology, but the principle and process has remained the same: students receive a concrete lesson in the power of the poets' words and techniques by translating those concepts into sight and sound. When students see the effects of their visual and vocal choices create, they understand more clearly the concept of literary and rhetorical analysis required by the AP tests.
