Product Description
Engage your students in a poem writing experience that focuses on rhythm, rhyme, and any other poetic elements of your choice with this creative texting couplets assignment for twenty-first century learners. What gets students excited? Pictures and texting! This assignment combines the best of both words, asking students to select a picture (many options included) that will inspire them to write a series of text message couplets with a consistent rhythm and rhyme scheme.

This assignment is the perfect complement to your existing poetry unit. It has several variations in "smart phone" format for text message bubbles and picture placement. Also included is an editable PPT document that students can use to rearrange the text message bubbles to arrange them however they please.

Texting couplets take the fear out of poetry and help students to approach a challenging writing skill from a familiar lens...that of the smart phone! Try texting couplets with your students today, and leave some feedback to let us know how it went.

Suggestions for use and grading are included.
