Product Description
My students always love this writing assignment. This product includes an overview of villanelles-- an exciting type of poetry originating in the late 19th century. It gives a clear definition and overview of what a villanelle is and how it is structured. It also gives information about how to write your own villanelle.

Additionally, 2 famous villanelle poems are included to read and analyze with students (these are both easily found online as well, but I have included them for convenience).

Lastly, I have created a worksheet for students to create their own villanelle about a topic that is important to them. The rhyme scheme is included in order to help them through it.

My students always love this assignment and get really creative with it. I hope your students enjoy it as well!
