Product Description
Blackout poetry is when a page of text is completely blacked out (colored over with permanent marker so that it is no longer visible) except for a select few words. When only these words are visible, a brand new story is created from the existing text! Blackout poetry is like a treasure hunt since you find hidden meanings and secret messages in unlikely places.

For this assignment, students will be doing a more artistic interpretation a narrative essay by author, Sherman Alexie. During and after reading “Indian Education,” students will be creating three blackout poems, like the examples included in this resource, that conveys a story that can (loosely) relate back to some part of Alexie’s essay. To do this effectively, students may want to break the essay into its grade-level sections.
