Analyzing and Comparing Medieval and Modern Ballads
Rating
0.0 stars

Students read, analyze, and discuss medieval English ballads and then list characteristics of the genre. They then emphasize the narrative characteristics of ballads by choosing a ballad to act out. Using the Venn diagram tool, students next compare medieval ballads with modern ones. After familiarizing themselves with ballad themes and forms, students write their own original ballads, which they will perform in small groups. Finally, students engage in self-reflection on their group performances and on the literary characteristics of their ballads.

Animate that Haiku!
Rating
0.0 stars

Although some students insist they cannot write poetry, the haiku's short form and its lack of rhyme will make the students less apprehensive of the task. Because of their brevity, haikus are perfect for teaching students how to use Animoto, an online web tool to create short slideshows. After reading haikus and examining the haiku format, students write their own haikus that they then animate using Animoto.

Atem Aleu: The Lost Boys of Sudan
Rating
0.0 stars

It is estimated that more than 30,000 Sudanese boys were orphaned or separated from their homes and families by the civil war that tore apart South Sudan between 1984 and 2005. Atem Aleu, from the Dinka tribe, was seven years old when his village was attacked. When Atem, out in the fields tending the cows with the other Dinka village boys heard the gunshots, they fled and began the one thousand mile walk, barefoot from Sudan to Ethiopia and finally to the Kenyan refugee camp in Kakuma. The survivors of this tragic escape became known as the ‘Lost Boys of Sudan.’
