Use this poem project to wrap up your unit on figurative language and poetry devices. This product includes the project packet for students (including planning pages) and the project rubric.
I had students complete this project in class for the majority of their project to make sure it was their own work (and not mom's or dad's) and to better assess their progress with writing.
Students had a good time writing. I even did a class voting of the final poems. Each of my 4 periods had a winner and then their was a team-wide vote for the top poem.
The theme of our poems had to have something to do with "belonging," which was our unit theme. However, the document is in Word, so you could easily change it to whatever you wish.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
