For students, English is mandatory; for me, it's a passion. Driven to unlock in my students the joy I find in English language and literature, I strive to make interesting lessons based on topics students tell me they love, and throw as much creativity into the mix as I can to stave off boredom for everyone.

Implicit and Explicit Messages in Advertising

I've used this resource in English class and Social Science classes alike among high school students. In English, it's a great way to highlight the difference between implicit and explicit messages in order to teach them about inference; in social sciences, though, I use it to scrutinize the effectiveness of ads while unpicking the strategies and subliminal messaging of marketers and companies.
Writing Different Poetry Forms

Writing Different Poetry Forms

(1)
Featured are several examples of poetry that are fairly easy to grasp, as they follow rigid structures and rhyme schemes: villanelles, haikus, sonnets, and limericks. Instead of analyzing poems, this gives students the opportunity to create their own and become familiar with structure, form, and rhyme. This is a great opportunity to create a poem a day and by the end, students are able to put together their own little poetry anthology. Additionally, there is a small section on found poetry, for which you will need an old book to cut up. Particularly, this is a nice way to finish up an intense unit of analyzing poems, as it gives all the room in the world for creativity.
