This lesson describes how to set up a lesson for using flipped instruction in the creation of poetry with students.  The basic principle is that students learn poetry form though teacher-created instructional screencasts and spend in-class time working through the writing process.

I really like your lesson plan. I think it is a great idea to do the instructional part with videos that they are required to watch on their own time. This is great for students who learn and different paces, so they are able to watch it over and over until they understand it, instead of spending extra class time on this. I also think the VoiceThread is a great idea for students who aren’t so comfortable with expressing their poetry in front of the whole class. I think you will get a better analysis from this then you would from a student standing in front of the class. 

Technical Remarks:

Only think I can think of suggesting would be more activities with the poetry (games or something like that) to get their creative uses flowing.

Ease of use: I think your Lesson Plan can be easily understood and carried out by instructor and student.

What you did well: I like that the students are given more time to work on the poems in class because of the use of screen casts as homework.

What you could add to make the resource more useful: I think this lesson works very well as is, and cannot think of anything more to add.
