WATCH: The Shared Poetry Project




The Shared Poetry Project — inspired by this John Merrow blog entry — invites public school students to film community members reciting lines of poetry, then edit the readings into a video for the Learning Matters YouTube channel. This exciting project provides students the opportunity to develop or strengthen real-world skills of teamwork, quality control, and production. It also can introduce the 80% of Americans who do not have school-aged children to the remarkable abilities of our youth.

We’ve produced several examples so far. They are available on one link here, and one example is embedded above.

For more information, you can access this Google Document. If interested in doing this project with your class, please e-mail us.
