Collaborative poetry translation: Park, 2016

Although translation is part of the bilingual experiences of English language learners, literacy teachers and teacher educators know little about how translation can be used with high school - aged English language learners and with what affordances. Based on discour se data collected from a mixed - grade (grades 11 and 12) sheltered English class in an urban high school, this paper reports on the impact of Poetry Inside Out, a literacy program in which students translate world - class poems from their original language (e .g., Spanish, French, Chinese, etc.) into English. Findings suggest that participation in poetry translation and in structured discussions about poetry and translation can foster students’ semantic awareness; capacity for evidence - based reasoning; and thei r willingness to listen to and learn from classmates. The study’s findings speak to the potential of Poetry Inside Out as a program which recruits English language learners’ emergent bi - and multilingualism as a resource.

City lilacs In crack-haunted alleys, overhangs, plots of sour earth that pass for gardens, in the space between wall and wheelie bin, where men with mobiles make urgent conversation, where bare-legged girls shiver in April winds, where a new mother stands on her doorstep and blinks at the brightness of morning, so suddenly born - in all these places the city lilacs are pushing their cones of blossom into the spring to be taken by the warm wind.
Shona Whyte's insight:

Listen to poety and read along.  Use it for shadow-reading, to practice intonation, or to pick up vocabulary of a literary nature

I Am Poems

Jackie Gerstein:

"The "I Am Poem" is a template-based poem that requires students to represent themselves in the form of poetry as well as in visual form."

 

Shona Whyte:

This is a great activity for intermediate learners and above, or it could be simplified for young learners.  Class members write a poem about themselves using the template, then e-mail their poems with a photo to a Flickr account or shared Google Docs presentation.  All class members can view each others' poems, and they can then be shared in class with each person reading their contribution aloud.
