Poetry Reading and Explication Podcast Using Audition (by Rachel Isom)

Project Published 8/14/17 Last updated on 2/28/20

In this unit, students will create a poetry podcast using Adobe Audition to showcase a poem by reading it aloud and explaining its historical context, formal features, and major themes. Students will offer a context, reading, and interpretation of a poem to make their chosen poem more accessible to a general audience. In doing so, students will practice critical, close reading skills, oral presentation skills, and research skills with the goals of increasing understanding of and fostering appreciation for poetry.

I must be doing something wrong. ​The assignment prompt and rubric page and the Lesson Plans page don't seem to be working. I tried putting the information in as HTML, but nothing.

​I enjoyed this a lot! Someone who teaches in the same school as me can benefit from this idea so I plan on sharing it with him.
