Product Description
I use this exercise as an introduction to our Poetry Unit. Students have a week to complete two of the three interviews (I often let them complete all three for extra credit). I think the value of this exercise is for students to realize that poetry is in the every day and has shaped the people around them. Students are astounded to talk to coaches about something other than practice or a game. Parents/extended family, enjoy actually talking to teens and often cite their own high school experiences. I typically process this in class using a speed dating format - just to get students talking and hearing about different authors. Students in my class have to choose their own favorite poem to present and this is a way for them to do some "soft research" on poets. I think this would be a fantastic way to create a class anthology - students could include one recommended piece and one of their own favorites with brief explanations.
