ArchiTEXTS: Poetry Activity

http://www.northernarchitecture.com/education/resources/14/architexts-poetry-activity

An easy to use frame for writing poetry in response to a building, space or place. Written by Maureen Almond, this help sheet outlines some simple steps in which even the most nervous writer can create a poem:
'The whole idea with this approach is to help students build a template for themselves on which they can ‘hang’ a poem. I think to ask people who are unused to writing poetry, simply to write a poem can be quite daunting. By the time they have ‘built a template’ most of the really hard work is done – they have done the thinking, creating and also in a way, the planning too. This technique can be applied no matter what the subject, all that is necessary is that you vary the questions.'

The Way We Live

http://www.northernarchitecture.com/education/resources/18/the-way-we-live

The Way We Live project involved architecture students from Newcastle University and local young people in a series of investigations into their environments.
The full colour publication, whilst not written as a toolkit or a curriculum resource, outlines the tools and techniques used during the project, which could easily be replicated in other learning situations. The publication outlines the project’s aims, activities and outcomes and is essential reading for anyone interested in identifying tried and tested tools and techniques for engaging young people in regeneration processes.
