What is POEMETRICS™?
View this presentation to see it in action!
What you see here is still a work in progress. POEMETRICS™ will require lots of input from kids and kids’ poetry aficionados JUST LIKE YOU to design it right and ultimately to scale it to the point where we can start to do some really cool things.
For now, I’d love to hear your feedback in the comments section on my approach and on the variety of metrics used in the above presentation. Ignore the fact that the entire presentation is based on a sample of one (i.e., me); the idea is that any reader will eventually be able to share observations and opinions about the kids’ poetry books that they read. These “thoughts” can then be synthesized and displayed in a variety of unique ways — leading to insights, relationships, and activities that were never before possible, and opening a new path for kids to discover and explore the world of poetry. That’s the vision, anyways.
