Animating Poetry: Reading Poems about the Natural World
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
5.0 stars
Overview:

The purpose of this project is two-fold: first, to encourage students to make the reading of poetry a creative act; and, second, to help students appreciate particular literary devices in their functions as semaphores or interpretive signals. Those devices that are about the imagery of a poem (metaphor, simile, personification, description) can be thought of as magnifying glasses: we see most clearly that upon which the poet focuses our gaze. Similarly, those poetic devices that are about the sound of the poem (alliteration, consonance, enjambment, onomatopoeia, and repetition) can be thought of as volume buttons or amplifiers: we hear most clearly what the poet makes us listen to most attentively.

0.0 stars
Overview:

Project Summary
In this lesson students will learn about electromagnetic energy through a female engineer who invented frequency hopping that is used by so many devices we use daily. Students will explore and solve a real world problem by designing a device to block or build a stronger Wi-Fi signals. Each team will record their work with Flip.
Driving Questions / Scenario (what are we trying to solve or improve?)

What is the electromagnetic spectrum?
Which part of the electromagnetic spectrum does Wi-Fi use?
What materials do you think will block a Wi-Fi signal? What materials do you think will let a Wi-Fi signal pass through?
