Women in Poetry

Imagine linking poetry to technology! Thirty-three lessons comprise a 6-week "Women in Poetry" unit for high schoolers. Class members research women poets, learn how to respond electronically to discussions, write their poems, create web pages with hyperlinks, and copy and paste photos, art, and audio. As a final project, individuals post their poems and essays on a web page they created.
