PROJECT BRIEF

CREDITS

This curriculum unit was intended to make poetry feel accessible to students in 4th and 5th grade. They were encouraged to tackle sophisticated content written by poets such as Walt Whitman, Robert Frost and Emily Dickinson and were, in turn, asked to write their own poems.

 

My role on this project was to lead the visual design and establish the look and feel of the unit.
My main focus was the student "Poet's Journal" which combined both the poems and the
activity pages. The goal was for the book to have a crafty DIY feel, so that the students would perceive it as a creative space and therefore be more comfortable writing in the book and engaging with the content.
