The Highwayman 1

Posted by alexfinlayson on August 26, 2009

My class are working on a poetry/media assignment  for which they are producing music videos set to Loreena McKennitt’s rendition of the classic Alfred Noyes poem The Highwayman.

We have studied the poem extensively (if you aren’t familiar with it – I urge you to read it – the TeacherFirst website provides a brilliant interactive study for your class)

and my guys are working hard on their filming, art work and animations for the video. One of the ‘extras’ of the assignment was to write to Loreena McKennitt – we received this in reply

How awesome is that! Many thanks to Loreena McKennitt!

You can listen to her song on YouTube

Doctors order: let it load, turn the lights off, turn the volume up, get a nice drink, close your eyes and enjoy… repeat as necessary

All the best, Mr F
