Product Description
What is a poem?
This original poem by Soozi Bruun Cobb is an excellent starting point for any unit on poetry. It plays with the ideas of what poetry is and will help your students begin to question and discuss this complex genre.
To start your poetry unit: Challenge your students to brainstorm about this question using the graphic organizer to collect ideas individually or in pairs. Then read the poem aloud. Allow pairs to discuss and then add more ideas to the chart. Have pairs of students share thoughts with the whole group.
Culminating Activities:Take different stanzas/lines of the poem, A POEM, and give to pairs of students. Have them explain this section of the poem to the class or have them find examples of poetry they have read in your study of poetry. For example: Concrete poems could be an example of the line “can splay inappropriately” and poems by e. e. cummings could be used as an example of “no rules apply.”
