3 IntroductionI ask them to take a poem and hold it up to the light like a color slide… But all they want to do is tie the poem to a chair with rope and torture a confession out of it…. From “Introduction to Poetry” by Billy Collins
5 So what do I have to do again? You will be writing and reading lots of different types of poems.Your overall grade will depend on the number of poems you write, the illustrations, and on their quality.See the rubric to determine the number of poems you must write to earn points.Total poems to be written=22
6 Do our poems have to be typed? Final copies of poems should be typed and/or handwritten in your neatest writing.If you hand-write your poems, ink is a requirement.
7 Page SetupInclude the name of the type of poem at the top of each page.One poem per page.Short poems such as Haiku and 5Ws may have two poems per page.Do not use/write on the back of the paper.See examples in the classroom
8 Illustrations Each poem must include a color illustration. Illustrations may be hand drawn or printed from a computer.Illustrations help the reader to picture the poem. Therefore, the pictures must relate to the poem.
