Poetry Writing! Challenge your class to write a memory poem. A powerpoint presentation includes short video examples of poems to ignite images from the past in students’ minds. Slides take them through the steps of writing a “hunk of stone”, working with pairs or groups of three to read the first draft, rewriting and submitting the final poem. A rubric for poetry and an exit pass are included. Students may share their final poem with the class during Author’s Chair.

The poetry writing could be a long block period of time or short periods of time over three days.

Teachers may opt to allow time at the end of the unit for Author’s Chair when class members who want to share may read their poems.

Writing Memory Poetry includes:

Powerpoint presentation and pings

Google Slides link and pdf

Class directions for composition

Class suggestions for small group reading

Rewriting first draft

Poetry Rubric

Exit Pass
