Allowing us to express ourselves creatively, purposefully, and intentionally is one of the overall goals of English, and I've created these two writing activities to allow middle school and high school students to be able to do that.
The Lyric book assignment is an opportunity for students to engage with something they love (music) and use it to express their thoughts, emotions, and writing skill in a creative manner.
I've actually included two versions of the poetry book. One with slightly more intense requirements for those students who want to go deeper.
