The year is 2020. Our planet has descended into a world where communities are driven by extremism, greed, segregation, riots, and bad hair.
In this week-long unit, students are asked to collaboratively create a Two Voice Poem on an issue that has two diverse perspectives, with the aim of coming together to build a shared understanding. Very relevant to our world today!
This editable file includes assignment instructions/requirements, and a 5-point rubric or assessment. Assessment is based on the traits of Ideas, Voice, and Organization, as well as the core competencies of Valuing Diversity & Perspectives, and Collaboration.
This is a great assignment to challenge your students and extend their thinking in a fun way. We presented 'slam poem' style, so the students could incorporate performance/drama into their presentation.
