Collaborative Poetry

Again with the poetry!!!!! We found some old school typewriters shoved away in a closet here at our school and put together this display. The idea is that students can share writing responsibility of a poem with other students. Each writes a line, hits return and lets the next person continue the poem. It has been interesting to not only see the students come up with interesting ideas for poetry but also seeing them struggle and then master “old school” technology. I’ve told each of them to tell their parents that they now understand the struggle they must have gone through in high school and college. We will display the efforts on a display case we have in the hallway outside of the library.
