Product Description
Here we have an activity paired with a wonderful poem by Ingrid de Kok entitled "The Two Sherpas" with a focus on stylistics as well as literary tone. This mini-lesson pairs reflective creative writing plus grammar review with original sentences, thus combining both a mini-lesson on style and tone with reading and grammar practice all in one nifty assignment!

In assigning students to compose their own poetry, we are urging students to move into the Common Core Standards of 21st Century Skills, including communication, creativity, and critical thinking; they ALSO are being pushed into the higher levels of Bloom's Taxonomy (eg. moving beyond basic comprehension to application, analysis, evaluation, AND synthesis/creating)!

This is a fun method to help our future college students to not only read higher-level contemporary poetry, but also to prepare for standardized testing by applying strong reading strategies and formal language/grammar. Enjoy, and thank you for visiting my TpT store!
