This Word document provides all you need to have your students create text-based, creative, concrete found poems. Included is:
-a definition of the "concrete found poem," and how it combines the concrete poem and the found poem,
-explanations of how concrete found poems can be created with a character, setting, theme, or conflict,
-pictures of finished concrete found poems,
-a step-by-step instruction sheet (with checkboxes for each task) that you can photocopy for your students, and
-a rubric which reflects the instructions / checkboxes.
The document is purposefully in Word so that you can tweak the assignment sheet and/or rubric to reflect your students' needs. This assignment compels students to close-read and cite what they find, and then create meaningful images with the words. I love seeing the final results each time I assign this!
