Poetry + Video = AWESOME!!!

"Acquainted With the Night"

So as you know, it is POETRY MONTH!!  Okay, I will stop shouting, but I am excited.  I found this video on a website I follow for English teachers, and it was incredible.  Not only is it one of my favorite poets, Robert Frost, but it gave a whole new light to one of his poems.  I know we have talked about how music changes the mood/tone of a poem, but I hadn’t given much thought to putting video to poetry too.  Hmmmm….why hadn’t I thought of that?  Oh well!  Check out this video/audio to the poem, “Acquainted With the Night” by Robert Frost.

About Ms. Burroughs

I teach 7th grade language arts at Edwards Middle School. I love anything to do with technology and using it in reading and writing. Learning shouldn't have to be boring nor should the job of teaching. "To me, education is a leading out of what is already there in the pupil's soul." ~ Muriel Spark
