April Digital Citizenship Theme
Use Google Slides to annotate, animate, and emphasise important words, symbols, and phrases in poems.
Students can select fonts, colors, backgrounds, and images to include in a Digital Poster display of a poem to help portray the mood, theme, and tone of a poem.
Screencasts can be combined with either of these tools for students to create a video of their poetry creation with a voiceover dramatic reading of the poem by the student. Screencastify is a nice Chrome Extension to use for making screencasts.
Note: Not all YouTube videos have this option, but many do! Also, the subtitles in YouTube are not always perfect depending on the quality of sound and spoken voice within the video.
