Project Description: As you have learned the purpose of poetry can be to describe, to entertain, to persuade or to express an author’s emotion. Over the next 3 weeks you will experience writing many different types of poems. Your poetry collection will be called a poetry portfolio. You will have several days in Writing or Language Arts to work on your poems. You are also welcome to do more than the required number of poems. Additional poems may be written in school or at home.
This project description includes a project calendar (editable to your pacing needs) as well as a detailed (2-page) rubric for grading each of the 8 poems. Rubric is editable for your needs as well.
