Kate chose the poem, The Last Wolf by Mary TallMountain. I personally liked this poem, especially because it’s about an animal, and feels like it has many deep feelings in it. I liked the part where Kate compared it to a book called Shiver, which was a good comparison because it was related with the same animal, and Shiver is a good book. Her analyzing was good, and told about how the author used the right words, for example the flicking red and green lights are like spirits are fading.
Eva did the poem called Tuesday 9:00 AM by Denvor Butson. I think Eva did well in analyzing the poem, especially when she described the people suffering in the poem to natural disasters. I think this poem is confusing, but her explanation was detailed and easy to understand. I think the part where she compared the poem with a quote from Albert Einstein was good, because the quote really related to the poem, and had a connection. I think she could improve her presentation if she didn’t hesitate/ “um..um” and “like…likelike” so much, and maybe talked a bit more literary features.
Kazuki chose the poem called, To a Daughter Leaving Home by Linda Pastan. I really agreed and liked the part where he related to the Japanese TV series “Hajimete no Otsukai” (My first grocery shopping). His analyzing of the poem was good and detailed, although he could of improved his slide and how he talked because it was quite long and he talked fast without stopping which made me confused and bored.
May chose the poem, Lift Your Right Arm by Peter Cherches. I think the way she presented it was really creative, and interesting because it involved everyone in the class to join, which made the poem really fun. I also liked her pictures she chose for her slides and the poem she wrote in response to the poem, because it had connection to the original poem she chose. She could have spoken a bit more clearly, because I couldn’t really hear her sometimes.
This is a spelling tutorial my group made for “How to Spell Marvelous”. We did it both in the US way and the UK way. The drawings are drawn by me (mostly) and Anju. I hope you enjoy! And, one last thing, I hope you learn how to spell “Marvelous” after watching this tutorial!
