Poetry Tools in Action -- Alex: A Case Study....

Alex seemed to lack confidence in his abilities as a writer and as a scholar in an advanced-placement English class, and typically sat detached from the rest of his group. He took an immediate leadership role on his team, something that surprised both his peers and his teacher. He actively participated in his team's writing and reflective processes.

Top Letter From Ray Markow Reviews!

If you would like to learn to compose your own letters, see the cover letters website. The whole letter is truly long, but I hope people take the opportunity to read the entire thing. If you're looking for a particular letter it can oftentimes be difficult to find a fantastic list. Request letters are extremely simple to write.

When asked to comment on his experience with Flash poetry tools, he wrote:

I'm not a poet. I'm not a writer. However, I was today. I had something to contribute - but I was able to visually see how words came together without having to put all of the pieces together on my own. We did something similar when we completed the magnetic poetry activities, but using the computer matched the speed of my need to see how the ideas came together with the technology. I was a poet today.
