As a summative assessment to my Poetry Unit, students complete an in-class timed write on a sonnet, to assess their mastery of identify and analyzing poetic devices that contribute to a poem's overall meaning. Students then complete a multi-step project focused on one poet and his/her work. Students study & annotate 5 poems; memorize 1 poem; write a poem that imitates the style of their chosen poet; write an analysis of their own poem that defends its stylistic similarity.
Materials in this resource include: student sample writing, assignment sheet for students, grading rubric, brainstorming graphic organizer, 2 pages of poetry writing prompts and tips, and a complete teacher-created model for every step of the project.
