Yoga English - Universal Poster Activities for the Mind and Body

Yoga English - Universal Poster Activities for the Mind and Body

Yoga English is pretty well exactly what it sounds like: yoga + English activities = a new literature experience!Included are 9 posters for you to put around your classroom, each with a different yoga pose and set of questions and thinking/discussion prompts (as well as a brief intro on using this resource). Meant to be used while studying literature (novels, plays, short stories, etc.), the questions are universal and character-centric... which means you can use them again and again. Hello, last-minute planning! Except, these resources will help you bring creativity, thoughtfulness, discussion, and rejuvenation to your class, so it's the best kind of last-minute planning.The types of prompts included will be especially useful and relevant if the characters in the literature you're studying are any of the following:- in complicated relationships- unstable- in want or need of something- changing OR resistant to change- poised and strong- power-hungry- sturdy and well-formed- flimsy and weak- in need of some introspection (who isn't!?)
