This is a weeklong workshop, designed with interactive activities to reinforce figurative language and descriptive writing for young poets. It is a literacy based week of activities that delve further into metacognition and comprehension of poetry. Fully differentiated, there are hands on tasks which can be taught whole class or as collaborative group work.
The art activity pulls the students creativity to the forefront and is used as their inspiration for the final, published poetry piece.
