This is a two to three week unit/project which will cover reading, writing, and research standards. Students are to pick a "theme" for their project and it can really be anything. They must locate two poems, one old and one new, and song lyrics that pertain to that theme. They must analyze all three pieces and compare/contrast two of them. Students will pick the author of one of their pieces and write a short research essay on what inspires that author to write. They then create their own original poem or song on their chosen theme. They finish by creating an original piece of artwork on their theme. Finally, all work is put together and bound any way the student sees fit. They can choose to create a scrapbook or simply use a report cover. Included in this package are the following items:
1. Poetry Project Directions (handout for students) Word & PDF
2. Poetry Project Grading Sheet/Rubric (for student self-evaluation and teacher-evaluation) Word & PDF
3. Poetry Analysis Sheet (for analyzing poetry) Word & PDF
4. Research Paper Helper (a simple guide to help students through the research portion of the project) Word & PDF
