Product Description
This American poetry project is perfect for a culminating project after a poetry unit, especially in an American literature class. I use it as one of two projects for my AP Language classes after the AP exam. It is not just for AP or advanced students, however. The project involves reading and analyzing poetry as well as research on literary analysis and criticism, poets’ lives, culture and history of the different time periods represented, and the impact of the culture/history on the poets and their writing as well as their influence on American culture and history. The end product includes Annotated Bibliographies and creative presentations that incorporate all aspects of the research. The categories for this project are the following: American Romanticism, Poets Between the Wars, Harlem Renaissance, Beatniks, and three groups of Contemporary Poets. This project can be easily adapted to other poetry time periods and places (i.e., various British poetry eras). Complete instructions and guidelines for the students are included as well as rubrics for all aspects of the project. (I would allow 3-4 weeks for this project, depending on your schedule.)
