Tracee Orman's curator insight, April 6, 2013 10:32 AM

Students can draw an outline then place words inside to create a concrete poem. (For younger students.)

Tracee Orman's comment, April 6, 2013 10:34 AM
Cool! I wonder if there is one for older students/adults. My students use tagxedo.com, but can't place the words themselves. It would be nice if they had that control. Thanks for sharing!
