I have just discovered web quests.  They are like scavenger hunts on the internet.  Well, truthfully, students can use any textbook too.  I can see using a quest in studying grammar and poetry even.  For example, pair students in working pairs (this is probably the hardest part).  Have each pair find 10 poets with short bios attached.  Then, have each pair chose an author to research more deeply.  Have them choose 2 poets out of their 10 for teacher approval.  We want no two pairings reporting on the same author.  Then, the pair create a class presentation on that author.   They can use a power point, an interactive power point, a Prezi, the white board even.  :)  Other students will need to take notes on everyone's presentation for a final unit review test on poetry and poets.
