Assignment 1: Multimedia Poetry Project

Multimedia Poetry Presentation

1. CHOOSE A WELL-KNOWN POEM OR SONG LYRICS. (It cannot be something written by you or a friend.) Do not use a Haiku or Tanka, as they are too short. Make sure your selection allows you to find the information needed for your presentation.  2. CREATE 12 SLIDES OR 12 SEPARATE PAGES OF A WORD DOCUMENT
3. EACH SLIDE/PAGE NEEDS TO HAVE A BACKGROUND AND/OR PICTURE THAT MATCHES THE CONTENT. (Do not use the same background or picture for all slides/pages.) You only need to cite the sources of the pictures if you use ones that are copyrighted.
4. THE ITEMS THAT NEED TO BE ON EACH SLIDE/PAGE ARE LISTED BELOW. (FULL EXPLANATIONS ARE IN THE POETRY ASSIGNMENT WORKSHOP.)

You may choose any multimedia presentation tool you would like.  Here are some possibilities:

Powerpoint                    Prezi.com            SlideDog.com            Sway 

Animoto.com                Slideful.com        Powtoon.com            YouTube.com

YOU-TUBE HAS VIDEOS THAT EXPLAIN HOW TO DO THESE PRESENTATIONS. (If you are unable to access these apps, you may do a Word document that follows all the rules listed for the presentation below.)
