I had a lyrics project where students selected a song or poem in their native languages. On one side of a mini poster board, is the native language version and the other side was their interpretation of translation. They then created visuals on the poster board such as drawings or collages.
I did a poetry project using code switching. I explained to students what code switching was (when a speaker goes switches language mid conversation). Many didn’t even realize they did this and that it has a name!
