Lesson 2 of 8
In Progress

Pre-activity: Found word poems

To get started with this course, take five minutes to move about your physical space, or search the internet, and find a small collection of words that catch your attention. About 15-20 words will do.

Now use those words, and only those words, to construct a short poem or paragraph about writing, the experience of writing, or on the joys of academic writing and post it to the Padlet below.

Padlet supports screenreaders and is in the process of testing Padlet for WCAG 2.1 level AA compliance. For more information please review their accessibility page.
