Notes on Poetry

After roughly 10 minutes, the students were provided with the opportunity to share what they had written.  Today’s Warm Up was the first installment of “A Bar-A-Day” which was suggested by D. W. in my 3rd period class.  Each day as we explore poetry, the students will create a stanza of either an ongoing poem or they can create a short poem during that time.

The students then took notes on poetic rhythms, imagery devices, and patterns.
