The buyer will receive a found poem activity to accompany the book The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. Included are instructions and options for creating a found poem based on the text of the novel. Included is a word bank list of more than 600 words curated from the text of The Hate U Give. Also included are 3 example poems using a list of words drawn from the word bank. The word bank begins at chapter 1 and ends with the last chapter, so teachers can use curated sections of the list if desired, cut up the entire word bank, or cut the word bank in sections to give students to create a wide spectrum of poetry to encapsulate the content and theme of the novel.
This activity works well for station lesson plans or as a culminating activity to a unit. It also works well to use for students reading independently to convey their understanding of the book.
Teachers can also require literary elements are incorporated such as sound devices of alliteration or repetition. The assignment is easily adapted to the needs of the teacher, but provides the basis for the activity.
