School: Leman Academy of Excellence, Marana, Tucson, AZ
Planned By: Cathy Letkeman
Original Author: Cathy Letkeman, Tucson
Using a recitation or original poetry, turn poem into a rap
-use garageband loops to accompany the rap
-create a video montage of pictures (photographed by scholars with iPad, or found in Google images or other graphics program/application) to complement the poem
-record rapped recitation, and add it to video montage in iMovie

Classical Application (integration of music & classroom learning): applying recitation in a complementary form which may help with retention/memory/meaningful connections
Cross-Curriculum Ideas
applying poetry recitation in a complementary form which may help with retention/memory/meaningful connections
Follow-Up
Share video montage with school in a showcase format; tied together with a theme, perhaps?
