Go over and study different poems from various authors and students: Poetry examples and terms


By the end of the week, you should have written at least three poems…

1-Quick Writes: Think of a person who is important to you… write the following

“What you remember about that person”

“What you know about that person”

“What you don’t tell that person”

Select various lines and words from your response and construct lines of free verse poetry from your selections.

2-Write some haikus! A haiku is a three line poem following the format: 1st line 5 syllables, 2nd line 7 syllables, 3rd line 5 syllables. Haiku examples.

3-Create a “found poem” of at least ten lines.  Found poetry is created by using words from various sources.  You can “find” words and phrases anywhere (newspapers, books, songs, conversations) be creative.
