How I Use It
This site could be used in a middle school/high school classroom. It is geared towards older students and gives them a variety of resources. Students working on poetry can use this site to view poems, biographies of poets and offers them a place to showcase their own poetry. Any teacher who is looking to incorporate poetry or a poetry unit into their classroom would benefit from this site.
My Take
I would recommend this site wholeheartedly. It offers cutting edge interactive graphics that will pull students in. It doesn't just have poetry but biographies and a place to create their own poems. This app pulls students in and offers them a place to explore and learn about poetry using an alternate form of learning. I would recommend using this site in a middle/high school classroom.
