Moran Lit & Comp I Winter Poem Project Choose one option. 1.

Create a photographic essay that captures some of the ideas, feelings, and images from the three poems that we read. You should include at least two photographs for each poem. The photographs should be on a poster, and beneath each photograph you should write the line(s) from Burns, Dickinson, or Stevens that inspired the photograph. You will present your photo essay to the class. 2. Create and perform an interpretive dance based on one of the poems we read. Turn in a short (between half a page and a page, single-spaced) explanation of how you came up with your ideas for your interpretive dance. 3. Shoot and edit a short video that combines images with a reading of one of the poems that we read. Turn in a short explanation of how you chose to compose the video. 4. Write a letter either to Robert Burns, Emily Dickinson, or Wallace Stevens. In your letter make clear that you have thought carefully and deeply about their work. Ask questions. Express your own thoughts about winter. The letter should be about a page single-spaced. (NB: Make sure before you choose this option, that the poem you have chosen really means something to you.) This assignment is due on Tuesday, January 19. (For Red: Wednesday, January 20.)
