Product Description
You've just completed an extensive unit on poetry, reading and analyzing dozens of poems of a variety of styles. You've worked tirelessly on figurative language and poetic techniques, you've done the interactive notebook, you've done collaborative poetry writing -- you've done it all. Now it's time for students to write their own poem using everything they've learned. And 25 pairs of eyes stare at you like they have no idea what to do or where to start.

Sound familiar? Here's a product that may help. This packet walks students through the thought processes of developing a poem, gently reminds them about the things they've learned about poetry, and provides examples along the way.

This is great for scaffolding. Teachers can guide students through it who need more help, and let those who don't simply work through the packet on their own. Students will finish the packet with a rough draft of their own poem using poetic techniques, figurative language, and graphical elements. What to do with the final draft is up to the teacher. I would have my students do final drafts on heavy-weight paper and add color to them.
