With this app, students can learn about and write haiku, a popular Japanese poem that traditionally has three lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables. They begin by brainstorming words for their poem, and then they compose their poem with attention to how many syllables they’ve written for each line. The final step allows students to customize the design of their poem with one of the provided artistic backgrounds or by uploading their own image.
Saving capability allows students to return to their work and make revisions. Final work can be shared via e-mail or saved to the device's camera roll.
Designed for use in the school environment, this app features a simple profile system so that multiple users can create and store their own haiku poems on the same device without confusion.
This app mirrors our web-based student interactive Haiku Poems, so users familiar with one can easily adapt to the other. In fact, the two are so similar that users can send their editable .rwt files to an email address and then open their haiku poem right in the online tool!
What's New in Version 1.1
Added the poem title and a by line to the final work.
