This is a great media assignment that's cheap to do, and a great way to use up old "loved" (falling apart) books from the department book room.
It asks students to create BLACKOUT POETRY, which asks them to subtract, or delete words, from an old page of a book to create a poem.
It only requires a marker, a page from a book (photocopies, printed, or an original), and their creativity.
The project goes through the steps, an exemplar, and a basic rubric.
These look absolutely amazing when displayed in the classroom...sometimes we even put them as part of our art show at school.
