Product Description
Natasha Tretheway's contemporary poem "Graveyard Blues" coupled with a literary element focus on rhyme scheme as well as eulogizing a loved one's passing.

This activity pairs reflective creative writing plus grammar practice with original sentences, thus combining both a mini-lesson on style and tone with reading and grammar all in one activity.

In assigning students to compose their own poetry, we are urging students to move into the Common Core Standards of 21st Century Skills, including communication, creativity, and critical thinking; they ALSO are being pushed into the higher levels of Bloom's Taxonomy (eg. moving beyond basic comprehension to application, analysis, evaluation, AND synthesis/creating)!

This is a fun method to help our future college students to not only read higher-level contemporary poetry, but also to prepare for standardized testing by applying strong reading strategies and formal grammar/language.

Enjoy, and thank you for visiting my TpT store!
