This small group activity can familiarize students with poets’ techniques. Select some poetry books for the students to use. Using the bookmarks, either have the students pick a bookmark or assign a bookmark and a poetry book. Students search through the book of poems for examples of the poetry technique on the bookmark. If the student has the bookmark “Poetry Techniques” he finds an example of a device of his choice. After students locate examples and share within the group, they trade bookmarks and repeat the steps again for up to eight rounds.
