PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

For use with any poem. Poems with a narrative work very well for this activity as students then focus on filling in the rest of the details. Abstract poems and ones without narrative provide an additional challenge for students to capture the theme or main idea to create a narrative that matches or complements.

For this activity, students will write a narrative based on a poem. Students will need to consider the theme along with any characters or events from the poem in creating a narrative. Point of view for the narrative may be assigned or student-selected.

For abstract poems without a clear narrator, students will be challenged to create a story that matches the theme. They can then incorporate the poem in parts or whole into their narrative. Using an abstract poem has both greater freedom in the narrative as well as challenge on how to translate a concept into a narrative.

Additional instructions or areas of focus can be given to shape the narratives of fit with a particular literary device or unit of study. Such as using a minor character from the poem, employing a certain point of view, relating the poems theme to a broader theme from a unit of study, or referring to other texts studied along with the poem.
