The Sound of My Rainbow, The Taste of My Clouds: The Synesthetic Experience
- 2 Downloads
Synesthesia is the physiological crossing of the senses. Using the metaphoric aspect of this condition, it is possible to have students write increasingly self-directed and reflective poems which allow a reader/teacher insights into the students’ lives and personalities. Exercises start off describing the taste of clouds, for example, move to the smell of anger perhaps, and then on to describing oneself as a color. Student sample poems are included.
