This is a poetry portfolio assignment centered around the book October Mourning: A Song for Matthew Shepard.
Students choose an event (current, historical, or personal) to write a series of poems about. Six of the poems are required, and students can choose four more that are based on the various forms of poems found in the book.
This word document can be edited and also includes a grading rubric.
