How can I be the change I want to see in the world?
is in need of more information regarding various poets, their poetry, visual interpretation of the poetry, and what sort of change they’ve created or attempted. Because you’ve been and will be studying poetry, they felt asking you to complete this task as a webpage would be a natural fit. Read through the rest of the wiki to find out what your expectations are and how you will complete this.
You will demonstrate your knowledge of your poet and his or her writing by gathering data (from textbook, websites, and online databases) and creating an informative & creative webpage on our Poetry Wiki. Your project will include different types of information & products as explained below.
Your project should: 1) show what you know about your poet; 2) demonstrate teamwork, with all members contributing significant information and knowledge; 3) demonstrate understanding of the change, if any, your poet has inspired; and 4) should have a layout that is well ordered for others to be able to find your information & pictures.
All words need to be your own! Do NOT cut and paste anything from the Internet.
The required parts of your wiki page are as follows:
Part 1: Informational presentation
Page title (that looks like a title) & creator’s names (Remember NO last names.)
