PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Sixteen Day Poetry Competition BUNDLE

ENGAGE STUDENTS WITH A
GRADE 7 THROUGH 12 POETRY TOURNAMENT!

Challenge your class to choose the champion poem out of a field of 32 competitors. The poetry tournament is an easy non-fiction assessment to align to your curriculum and engage students.

Each day for sixteen days students will compare and contrast two poems and vote for a winner.

After the first round is completed, students will use a graphic to analyze the poetic devices in the tourney round. They will continue to do this in each succeeding rounds until the winning poem is selected.

Poems will be placed on the bracket of winners which students will follow until the final champion is announced. Poems are from the public domain.

A printable Google Doc document includes student instructions, the bracket, and 32 poems selected for the tourney.

The final activity in the sixteen day March Madness Poetry Competition is the Poetry Essay. Students will write a persuasive essay about why the winning poem should have been the champion OR a compare/contrast essay explaining why they think another poem should have been selected.

* printable Google Doc poems and bracket.
