Product Description
This is a one-hour lesson that introduces students to Nikki Giovanni's "Knoxville, TN" then allows them to play with her style by writing their own favorite place poem. Can be adapted from partner to individual work, and could be extended by having students create a picture book of their favorite place as well. Helps students realize they CAN understand and write poetry of their own. A great introduction into creative writing, or a great way to get to know a little more about your kids. Either way, it is a fun and engaging activity that both you and your students will be pleased with the results. Happy writing!
