I don’t know Nick Senger, but just discovered his blog, Teen Literacy Tips: Working to Improve the Teaching of Literature, because he linked to my Screencast-o-matic for AP Lit post. (I just love how that works.)
Nick’s blog is a keeper for Language Arts teachers. Here’s a very simple, elegant poetry movie assignment he posted about – and modeled – on his blog. The timing is perfect, since I’d planned something similar, but typically more complex than necessary. Nick reduces the task to three easy steps.
And here’s his video showing his own success at the project:
There are many more great posts at his blog. Do yourself a favor, English teachers, and blogroll this guy! Another rising edublogger to learn from! [Update: "Rising" edublogger? Nick's been doing it waaay longer than I have. He's an old pro and award-winning teacher.]
