➡ UPDATED WITH NEW ADDED FEATURES⚡
“We Real Cool" is part of our Poetry Series designed to improve annotation skills, bolster reading comprehension, and cultivate literary appreciation.
• “Side-by-Side” Annotation Organizer
The Side-by-Side Annotation Organizer includes the complete poem and is designed with ample space beside the text for student annotations and teacher comments.
• Quick Picture Strategy with Example (NEW) Poem
The Quick Picture Strategy is used to promote critical thinking and stimulate growth while reading, enjoying, and interpreting poetry. Students generate quick images of ideas they produce in their minds. This process of personal creativity promotes associative recall; the students remember the significance of the drawing because no one is telling them what to draw.

This is a simple organizer that can be used for many different teaching situations, from basic annotation instruction to the development of independent student annotation. It can be used with any type of text, including poems, short stories, novels, or nonfiction.
• Digital Ready (NEW)
All student materials are Digital Ready. Students can use a computer to enter, edit, highlight, and save text directly in special areas in the PDF document. The documents can also be uploaded to services like Google Classroom, Edmodo, and Blackboard for students to download.
• Common Core (NEW)
The Quick Picture Strategy for “We Real Cool” supports several Common Core Standards (CCSS): CCRA.R.1, CCRA.R.2, CCRA.R.3, CCRA.R.4, and CCRA.R.10.
