Product Description
I love watching my students work through this creative activity. More than that, I love seeing and reading their end products.

This poetry task can be used for middle and high school students - perhaps some creative elementary kids.

The Search and Create Poetry task is a great way to add something creative to a novel unit, but it can be used for any passage or text. The idea of this creative poetry assignment is to challenge students to choose words or phrases from an assigned text (novel, article, etc.) that will work together to create a thematic poem. This is a great way to discuss themes of a text as well as the power of words when communicating ideas.

OBJECTIVES:
1) Students will understand that their experiences and perspectives have value;
2) they will demonstrate an ability to write their own creative poem from the borrowed
words of a selected passage and author; and,
3) they will understand how theme relates to deliberate word choice.
