Sometimes random themes show up in the various social networks that I follow. Today, I came across two completely different posts that appealed to my appreciation for creative ways for students to show their learning.
First, I saw this tweet:

I like the idea of making poetry 3-dimensional, and I could see lots of ways to go with this idea.
Then, I saw a tweet from Russel Tarr about “Tubular Timeline Towers,” an idea one of his students designed for an open-ended homework assignment. What a great way to represent something chronologically!
The wheels are turning in my brain as I try to think of variations on this theme!
