Collecting Information: Interviews.

We have found out that when you do research you must collect lots of different kinds of information. This is so you can use it to help answer your question and guide your discussion.
Our first task as researchers is to find out what different people already know about poetry.
We have decided to use interviews as a way of collecting information.
This information will be kept on this Blog, so when we have finished, we can compare what people knew and thought at the beginning and at the end of our project.

In the comments part of this post you will find our own individual questions, these will be used in our interviews.

I think poetry is important because it helps me to use different language and ideas to express myself, for example when I am sad, lonely or angry.

I enjoy writing poetry especially when they rhyme and it helps me with my spelling and writing.

I also enjoy reading poems and nursery rhymes to my little sister.

We had a talk about the famous poet Benjamin Zaphania at my Ilford library club. I wrote a poem about my dad and how much I love him.
