PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These days we prioritize the Argumentative Essay as a writing format, using the terms claim, evidence, and analysis. Our students dutifully write accordingly and gradually improve their analytical writing skills. What often gets sidelined is creative writing, especially poetry. Here's an activity that involves poetry analysis and writing, using Sandburg's famous poem "Chicago." I have students read the poem aloud (it really begs to be read aloud) with 8 readers, then we break it down and analyze it (Sandburg makes an argument, acknowledging the cons and asserting the pros about his city). A study guide (with an answer key) and an assessment is provided. Finally students write their own version of the poem about a place they care deeply about. Their creative writing result is an "Argumentative Poem" based on Sandburg's masterpiece. I've included my own rendition of this assignment.
