Recently, I discovered an interesting kind of poetry called book spine poetry while reading the 100 Scope Notes blog. This poetry is a type of found poem where you gather books that have titles that speak to you in some way as a poet. You arrange the books in a stack and let the titles on the spines become your poem.
Recently, two classes gave this type of poetry a try. As students photographed their poems, they imported the pictures into Photo Story and recorded themselves reading their poems. Take a look at what they created.
