This complete lesson guides students through writing their own self-expression poem by drawing inspiration from the writings of Elizabeth Acevedo, author of Poet X. This resource includes a slideshow, writing and analysis handouts, and a suggested lesson plan. This lesson is a great way to introduce some writing from a diverse author, add some creativity to an English curriculum, start the year off with rigor, or a number of other ways.

This mentor study is designed to follow up my The "I Am" Poem for High School. Before buying, I highly recommend you download and check out this FREE resource. It will give you a great idea of how my mentor study lesson is laid out as well
