This poetry-writing exercise for writing a villanelle includes an assignment sheet with a detailed description of the form, professional examples, a printable for repetition patterns, a product-specific rubric to assess the student-written poem, and a student-written example to help students get started.
I have used this in conjunction with teaching Dylan Thomas's "Do Not Go Gently into That Good Night" and as an option for a creative writing class. Writing your own villanelle is helpful for assisting students as they write their own creations.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions or questions.
