This slideshow guides students in writing a double dactyl, a fixed form poem composed of the meter dactyl and following various other rules. It contains specific rules for a double dactyl and some guiding tips to assist students, as well as a website that can help them find subjects that are already in dactylic form. It includes a rubric for scoring purposes. Each file in this resource is available in both PDF and Microsoft Office (PowerPoint and Word).
