Write a narrative poem that recounts a fictional or true event dealing with the concept of choice. The poem must demonstrate your knowledge of narrative elements and poetic elements.
Prewriting Brainstorm ideas for a narrative poem about the concept of choice. These ideas may come from any of the following areas: Your own life A narrative that you have already written Stories that you have heard about other people Fictional stories you have read or watched Myths and fairy tales
Drafting Once you have decided on a topic/idea, in small groups review the elements of narrative writing that you have learned: sequence of events, dialogue, details, characters, setting, description, etc. Create a plan incorporating these elements into a narrative poem. Write the first draft.
Caution! Do not overdo the poetic elements. Start slowly and use them only where they make a difference.
Group Revising Identify places in your poem where you can refine the structure to enhance its ideas and style. Review your Poetic Devices chart and consider revising the poem to enhance descriptions through poetic devices: metaphor, similes, imagery, symbols, or other devices with which you are comfortable.
Revision continued Revise your poem to create appropriate line breaks and stanzas. Consider adding a refrain or a pattern of repeated words and phrases. Consider using punctuation to support the meaning of the poem. Consult the Scoring Guide to add further revisions.
Edit Proofread your draft to identify mistakes in grammar, punctuation, and spelling. Review your draft and select an appropriate title for your poem. Prepare a publishable draft.
