Watch the following video:

Evaluating Sources for Credibility

Using the handout "Web Page Evaluation Checklist" read through this page:

Evaluating Web Pages: Techniques to Apply & Questions to Ask

IF you use resources not vetted through the databases at MHS and BHC, you need to complete a "Web Page Evaluation Checklist" in order to check for bias and authenticity.

Review the poems you have created this week. We are going to "play" with the positioning of text versus white space.

Look at the following poems and how they appear differently on the page:

Langston Hughes-Theme For English B

[in Just-] BY E. E. CUMMINGS


Read the following page and view the examples of how to use white space within your poems:

Line Breaks and White Space

Look at the arrangement on the page and see how alternating the balance of text to white space changes the overall effect of the poem. Make changes to your own poems.

When you are done with your revisions, you get to play! Click on the link below to create your own digital sand art inspired by your poems! You can print it when finished if you wish.
