Ms. Mazarakis’ Grade 10 students integrated iPads as a wonderful tool for enhancing their literacy analysis visual project. I snapped a few photos of the works in progress, but I recommend viewing the final student work below. Check out the full project via this link.
Ms. Mazarakis’ introduction to the project:
10th Grade Literary Analysis Visual Project:
“Students created Google presentations to practice their skills of literary analysis. Each slide in the presentation has three components: a rich excerpt taken from a short story, analysis of a literary element within the excerpt, and a visual representation created using Paper 53 on the iPads. Students worked collaboratively to create the presentation in class, taking turns typing the text on laptops and working with the iPads to create images. The novelty of the iPads definitely increased their enthusiasm for the assignment. We were all impressed with the professional quality and originality of the artwork that resulted from using this app!
Many thanks to the 10th grade English team who collaboratively created this project—my contribution was simply to add iPads into the mix!”
