concept in education ever transforming
Re-vision, or look at it again,
Trying to be an objective bystander of your own work,
answer the following questions:
- Does your subject develop
- Do your words provide a
snapshot of your object or idea?
- Have you included an appeal to
some or all of the five senses: hearing, smelling, touching,
- Have you created a fresh,
springy, unexpected simile or metaphor that WORKS?
- How about MUSIC?
Can you find assonance (repetition of vowel sounds)?
Can you find alliteration (repetition of initial consonant
If not, can you change some words to inject assonance or
- What about your line
Are they speaking in a way you want them to?
- Do the lines end with musical,
high impact words (nouns and verbs), as opposed to articles (a,
an, the) or prepositions (to,for)?
- Finally, are you satisfied
with the results, truly?
No, really satisfied?
What's still bugging you?
What would you change?
TRY IT! You'll never know until you try.
