Jabberwocky Poem/ My version

The bright and shiny toads
Did jump and slide in the water;
All the trees were in the groves,
And the moths ravaged the plants.

“Beware of the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws the clamp, and the claws that swipe!
Beware of the JubJub bird and the shun
The furious Bandersnatch!”

He took his vast sword in hand:
Sought long and hard for the mysterious foe—
So he rested by the giant oak tree,
And stood for a time in thought.

And in deep thought, he stood,
The Jabberwock appeared with eyes aflame.
It came soaring through the twisted wood,
And bellowed as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vast sword went rickety-rack
He left it dead, and snatched the head
He went galloping back

“And have you killed the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, smiling boy!
O’ glorious day! Hoorah! Hooray!”
He chuckled in joy.

The bright and shiny toads
Did jump and slide in the water;
All the trees were in the groves,
And the moths ravaged the plants.

Reaction/Analysis
This poem was a very interesting poem from the fact that the original version was somewhat difficult to read because of the twisted words throughout the poem. Once I translated the poem I found it easier to read and it also made the story make sense. Before I actually translated the poem I had to read through it a couple times to figure out what the “coded” words actually meant and then I replaced them as I went. Although this is simply my own personal translation it will have a different translation for other readers because it forces the imagination to think what the actual coded words could mean.

The reason that I think these new media literacy ideas belong in the certain areas that they do is because each of them provide certain qualities to the integrated social studies content area. I believe that the top tier of the grouping belongs in the area that it does is that all of the literacy ideas are crucial to learning in the social studies area. The most crucial in the group that i believe for the group is collective intelligence and visualization because it allows for the students to become deeply involved in the process of history. I believe that the second grouping is just as crucial in the same breath as the top tier however it is debatable in the importance because some of the literacy ideas can be used in the social studies classroom on a daily basis. The last grouping however does not provide any input to a social studies classroom because they do not provide any practical help to learning in a social studies classroom
