What is the best infographic that you have used before? How did it help? How was it a beautiful display of information? Why is it an effective medium? This infographic came from Neil Patel’s blog post, “Ten Infographics,” and we can post other great curations in the comment box below.
Shakespeare Infographic Project: the class will produce an infographic that will explain the complexities of a Shakespearean sonnet and will include such topics of poetry skills, themes, Elizabethan culture, climate, and history as well as the legacy and modern iterations of Shakespearean sonnets today. For instance, have you ever heard this #hiphop version before? Short version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_31_UDs7Iac Longer TED Talk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSbtkLA3GrY
Working in groups, students will compose an essay together on Sonnet 18. That experience will help them become better designers of an infographic. This sonnet project will help you learn how to write your own sonnet essay this trimester and will serve as a review sheet for the trimester exam. When each group has a product that we will establish a rubric together for an engagement grade, we will then have the class decide which infographic we will publish to our Shakespeare Twitter account: https://twitter.com/The_Wit_of_Will
