Product Description
Poetry is a powerful way to engage middle school students in critical thinking and writing. I offer you a lesson on writing Japanese Tanka in hopes that it will help you get the young people in your charge to write good poetry. I’ve included models, simple instructions and prompts. I’ve also added a cooperative learning activity that allows students to share their work in a structured manner. These lessons may be used alone or (Much better!) in connection with John Miller’s amazing Minecraft project. His 7th grade students created a medieval Japanese landscape and imbedded their poems within it. Your students can do this too!

Here’s the link to the Minecraft project:
