Product Description

This collaborative activity challenges students to use their understanding of transitions, patterns, sentence structure, etc. to reconstruct Billy Collins' coming-of-age poem "On Turning Ten", and includes opportunities for reflection and analysis. The actual poem is also included to give to students once they have constructed their own version, to compare and contrast theirs with Collins'. This activity pairs well with any coming-of-age unit (I use it with "To Kill a Mockingbird"), but it can also go with any poetry unit as well as just as a collaborative activity.
