Went to the Intesol Conference in Indy this weekend. Was phenomenal! Best one I've been to yet! One great activity that we did was in Katie Brooks and Maggie Robillard's presentation--we wrote a poem for two voices. While I'm an avid poem writer, I've not yet tried this type. I worked with two inspirational writers/teachers; here's what we came up with:
Social Studies Class
by Denise Anderson, Ana Arroyo (both IPS School 15), and Sarah Steele
I sit every day I stand every day
About American ideals
About America's ideas
The Founding Fathers
They found padres?
I'm lost My students are lost
Here we go again Let's try again
I have a question Shh!
We have to get through this lesson
But, but who are the padres? THE F OU N D ING FAA THERS
But You're interrupting
