In this lesson from ReadWriteThink, students have the opportunity to play with language, particularly prepositions, through the literature of Ruth Heller. Taking those experiences as a reader, they are asked to continue to play with the language in poetry by moving around prepositions using the Word Mover interactive to create original poetry. They then publish their poetry in a multimodal format modeled on Heller's text.
