I used this as my culminating project for a poetry unit. It allows the students to demonstrate what they have learned but also allows them to be creative while constructing the evidence to show their learning.
The project involves them creating a 14 page poetry booklet (including covers) that incorporates found poetry and written poetry on six different subjects chosen by them. They also incorporate photos or illustrations for the poetry. Each subject will use the five poetic devices: simile, metaphor, assonance, alliteration, and personification.
This product includes the student handout and the final grading sheet. This assignment can be done in just a couple of days (students work in class) or over the course of a week (students work at home).
