I LOVE Blackout Poetry and for many reasons. For one, this completely teaches students how to form meaning with words. You are giving students the opportunity to create a new meaning off of an except that already had an original meaning to it. This assignment allows for the students to be creative and use their critical thinking skills to form new meaning.
This assignment can be used with ANY novel unit that you are teaching or just as a poetry lesson in general.
In this packet you will find:
☆ Instructions to blackout poetry using Romeo and Juliet
☆ Instructions to blackout poetry and general (AKA steps that the students need to take to form their poem)
☆ A rubric that you are more than welcome to use or create your own based on what is best for your students
