PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

With this Dialogue Poems Writing Lesson, students use mentor texts as models for their own writing. These lessons capitalize on the intimate relationship between the processes of reading and writing; they show students the connections between the literature they read and the writing that they can do.

In this lesson, students first read examples of dialogue poems (internet links are provided to these poems which are also called "poems for two voices") and then write their own dialogue poems. They start by brainstorming a list of characters that they could use in their poems, and then they journal about the perspectives of each of their chosen characters. They continue going through the writing process, and finally, draft their own dialogue poems. Students use the six traits (ideas, organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency, and conventions) for the peer revision, and the rubric evaluates their use of these traits.

Additionally, this would be a creative lesson for helping students better understand the varying perspectives of people throughout history (Native American/Settler, Owner/Slave, King/Serf, etc.) in a social studies class.
