Product Description
Here we have a wonderful poem by Poet Laureate Billy Collins entitled "Poem," coupled with reflective creative poetry writing plus grammar review with original sentences, thus combining both a mini-lesson on using metaphors with reading and grammar practice all in one activity.

In assigning students to compose their own poetry and correct grammatical errors, we are urging students to move into the Common Core Standards of 21st Century Skills, including communication, creativity, and critical thinking; they ALSO are being pushed into the higher levels of Bloom's Taxonomy (eg. moving beyond basic comprehension to application, analysis, evaluation, AND synthesis/creating)!

This is a fun method to help students not only read (& write!) authentic contemporary poetry, but also to prepare for standardized testing by applying strong reading strategies and formal language/conventions.

Enjoy, and thank you for visiting my TpT store!
