PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This research project includes an assignment sheet with options for students to research a poet and create a Poet-Tree or Poet-Tee (t-shirt), a rubric to assess either research product, and a mock-up sample of each to help students get started.

I have used this project in my class to augment or replace traditional biographical research on a poet. Students use their research findings to develop a creative product for display and explain to the class. Poet-Trees are a good holiday project to complete in December, as I had a forest in the back of my classroom of various poets. Supplies are easier to find around the holiday.

The T-Shirt option was more appealing to my students who had limited resources at their disposal. The most creative and well-developed Poet-Tee a student designed, he used a set of sharpies and and old, white T-Shirt of his father's.

Students typically enjoy this project and giving them the option of working with a partner engages them as well.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions or questions.

Thank you,
