Integrating poetry with reading and history is an integral way to push your students to higher levels of thinking. Use this "I Am" poem template to help your students understand deeper levels of characterization in a novel, literature story, history unit about famous people, or even in science and math when discussing people who contributed much to their fields of study.
Or, use this in writing to have students express ideas about themselves, family members and/or friends.
See other great writing ideas, as well as novel studies in my TpT store that you can use this template with! Follow me for updated items, freebies, and new lesson ideas on TpT and on Facebook.
