This lesson is intended for use with any piece of secondary classroom literature. The example used is C.S. Lewis’ Out of the Silent Planet, but the lesson can be adapted to any book. This lesson uses the concept of found poetry, creating a poem using words or phrases from a preexisting text, to introduce students to the concept of theme in literature. In this lesson, students select a theme from Out of the Silent Planet and then use quotes from the book that they believe reflect that theme. Then, they construct a poem using those quotes, hence the “found poem.” This activity engages students in skills essential to literature analysis and creative writing, including finding themes within literature, citing textual evidence for said themes, and creative writing through poetry. Though used with Out of the Silent Planet, this lesson could be adapted to any work of literature at any secondary grade level.
