With support from my real life PLN and my virtual PLN I have managed to get my act together and produce something which could be used as a flipped classroom exercise. I don’t need them for French because there are plenty of quality materials made by French and Francophone people which I can use for those sorts of activities. This is an exercise I used to do in English and it never failed to be a winner. I love poetry and I have always loved teaching poetry. The video is not perfect but because I have made it in Pinnacle Studio I can pull it apart and tinker with it very easily when I feel like it and have the time. I enhanced the sound quality in Wave Pad. It is really important to have good, clear sound on a video. I am happy with what I have done because I like making videos. I have learned a lot about putting a video together and even more about sound enhancement. The original idea came from Adelaide Poet , Rory Harris. He came as a contract teacher to my school at the time and we worked together on senior English. He was a poet but he knew how to engage any other human being in poetry in the most amazing ways. This is one of the ideas he shared with me.
