Sarah's Notes

If you're implementing the Common Core, you're probably thinking about ways to make finding textual evidence both purposeful and engaging. Enter the found poem! In this video, see how my students hunt for textual evidence as it relates to a larger concept; then see how they use it to collectively create a unique class poem. More importantly, see how the students take a practiced skill, put it into a new context, mix in a little unpredictability, and get excited in an authentic moment of learning. Enjoy!
