Are you looking for a way to challenge students to use imagery while writing about something they love? Odes provide a fun challenge in a creative writing course, as an enrichment activity, or a way to review figurative language. Their open-ended structure, but focused subject matter allow for a gradual release of responsibility for creative writing students or for excellent writers looking to challenge themselves.

Students will love being able to write about something that brings them joy!

This product includes an introductory PowerPoint slideshow, as well as a suggested lesson plan with handouts. The structure is similar to my I Am Poem for High School FREEBIE so check that out for an idea of how my creative writing lessons flow :)
