Product Description
This assignment can be used as a stand alone activity, but it works great in conjunction with Sylvia Plath's poem "Mirror." Generally, I have students read and analyze "Mirror" withOUT the title listed with the poem. I make the students guess what the title is based on the poem itself. Students have a ton of fun with this because they feel like they are solving a riddle.

After we read and analyze "Mirror," students write their own 8-12 line poem from the perspective of an inanimate object using simile, imagery, and personification as if writing a riddle. Other students can then read the poems and guess what object.

This fun creative assignment tends to be a huge hit with my students. They really enjoy writing the poem and making one another guess what the speaker of their poem is.
