This project divides students into six groups, with each one reading, researching, and presenting poets from a specific time period in American history (i.e., American Romanticism, Beatnik poets). Specific instructions are given for the research aspect as well as the presentation (which requires much creativity--no boring PowerPoint presentations!). This project was originally designed for my AP Language students for the end-of-year project after the exam. I have also used in an American Literature course for juniors. A scoring rubric is included.
