List poetry blog & videos: Collaborative online writing, remixing & visualizing

Poetry Unit, List Poems, Poetry Videos

This Fall, fifth graders at PS 124 created “List” or “Catalog” poetry while learning to blog, and currently one of the classes is producing video representations of poems generated through this project.

Two fifth grade classes read There was a Child Went Forth by Walt Whitman, learning about the poet and his image-rich style of writing, and responded to 4 themes within the poem during directed free-writing sessions.

Campers young and old frame the action at The Generation Connection camp 2012.

It is always a goal of TMS/TGC productions to expose this decision-making process within our videos to not only demonstrate the building of media literacy that goes on at camp, but to expose our audience to those lessons as well. We hope to engage viewers in critical thinking about the constructedness of all media as they watch campers make editorial choices, and also transparently share the camp video production process to those who would like to try it for themselves.
