This poetry journal writing product is intended to help students respond to poetry in a thoughtful way while deepening their comprehension of the text. It contains five response-to-reading prompts that can be used with almost any poem and is appropriate for middle and high school classrooms. Each poetry journal prompt focuses on a different reading comprehension skill: analyzing, inferring, questioning, connecting, and evaluating.
Poetry journals are an excellent way to get students thinking about the text before they share their thoughts out loud. These poetry journal writing prompts could also be used as station activities or even as homework assignments.
These poetry writing prompts can be used with classic poems, like Romeo and Juliet or The Odyssey, nonsense poems like "Jabberwocky," classics like "Fog" and "The Road not Taken," or more contemporary pieces.
This product has a concise built-in rubric on every prompt for quick and easy grading, and it's aligned with numerous Common Core Reading Literature and Writing Standards. Hooray!
