This is a poetry writing assignment which builds on figurative language lessons covering 6 kinds of figurative language: onomatopoeia, metaphor, simile, hyperbole, alliteration, and personification. Students must use 3 of the 6 types of figurative language in their poem.
It was originally created to accompany a novel study on 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher for a 9th grade pull-out class. An activity to help prepare students for this assignment can be found here: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Figurative-Language-in-Poetry-1136699
