Transcript of Found Poetry
This will force them to understand the document more fully than they would by just reading the text You can use one document for all of your students, or you can have each one use a different document ... this will depend on your lesson Have students find a copy of the original document you want them to use at loc.gov, to get a feel for the original, but then have them find (or have prepared for them) a simple printed page of the text they can cut up to use for their found poetry
*** IMPORTANT: Do a practice search for the documents you want students to find ... while this is an amazing website, the search feature does not always return what you are looking for, so you may want to do this as a class exercise, or be prepared with hints if the students are struggling to find the document you want them to find On your printouts, medium to large font works best since they will be cutting up the words (REAL cutting and pasting ;-p) While found poetry can potentially be done on a computer, it is probably much easier for the students to visualize their poems if they can just move their words and phrases around with their fingers You can add creativity and artistry by giving students art and craft items to work with How to Start Decide on which document/s you want your students to work with, or let them choose a document Supplies ~ Construction Paper to work on
~ A printout of the document you will be using (using a font that is large enough to be easily cut up
~ Scissors, plain and fancy (edgers) if available
~ Glue sticks Presentation These look fabulous on bulletin boards! Students can read theirs aloud to the class They can be assembled into a booklet Prepared by Vivian Cisneros
