Product Description
Here we have a contemporary poem written by Senegalian poet Amadou Elimane Kane entitled "Violence." This Imitate-Reflect-Correct activity encourages students to use personification in their own creative writing as well as practicing proper grammar usage with a focus on common homonyms. This all-in-one activity may be used as a worksheet or simply as a PowerPoint presentation.

In inviting students to compose their own poetry, we are urging students to move into the Common Core Standards of 21st Century Skills, including communication, creativity, and critical thinking; they ALSO are being pushed into the higher levels of Bloom's Taxonomy (eg. moving beyond basic comprehension to application, analysis, evaluation, AND synthesis/creating)!

This is an engaging method to help our future college students to not only read and analyze higher-level contemporary poetry, but also to prepare for standardized testing by applying strong reading strategies and distinguishing between incorrect and standardized grammar/conventions/language.

Enjoy, and thank you for visiting my TpT store! I look forward to your feedback.
