This assignment asks students to identify poetic terms used in a poem. Each line models how poets use poetic devices such as assonance, alliteration, oxymoron, etc. This was used to scaffold and prepare students for their slam poetry contest, but this can be modified to meet the needs of students who are not preparing for such a contest.
When I went over the answers I projected this on to the white board. Students discussed their answers in a group and posted a sticky note with their answers.
After checking their answers, students were able to label the poetic terms used in their own poetry.
