Blackout Poetry

Grade Levels
4th - 8th
Formats Included
  • PDF


Author, poet and creative Austin Kleon has an unusual approach to words, he blacks out words in an existing text to create poetry. It's really quite amazing. It's also a different way to approach main idea and supporting details. I recommend incorporating a combination of fiction and academic passages. After putting this together, I sent him a copy of the lesson plan and he gave his blessings to share this process with the world.
