This activity can be done individually as well as a group project. The results are amazing! Students read and analyze Maya Angelou's poem "Life Doesn't Frighten Me". Then they work in small groups or independently to create a poem based on the writing style and theme of Angelou's amazing poem. Their poetry, however, has to be written in Auggie Pullman's point of view. Readers will understand that the speaker of the poem is Auggie. Final poems tell the story of August Pullman and his fears. Students write poems using repetition, rhyme, word choice, and figurative language. The results are amazing!
