POETRY Notebook – Product and Performance

Check ListPoetry Notebook

 

Lookiing for a way to engage students to create a POETRY-Notebook that showcases their learning about poetry and other English Language Arts skills and completing a product/performance assignment that reflects your instruction to meet COMMON CORE STANDARDS.  This poetry notebook assignment combines research, analysis based on strategies you’re teaching, such as Poetry T.I.M.E., and allows for student choice about a poet, http://teachingenglishlanguagearts.com/?attachment_id=5208including poems they write as patterns and as original compositions, and those they choose to recite on celebration day!

I invite you to see Chapters 7 and 8 in my book TEACHING MIDDLE SCHOOL LANGUAGE ARTS: Incorporating Twenty-first Century Literacies with strategies for teaching POETRY T.I.M.E..  Chapter 7 is “Taking T.I.M.E for Poetry” and Chapter 8 is “Versing Life Together”.

You’ll like this approach particularly because there is a timeline with due dates for sections of the assignment to be submitted for grading early, so you’ll not be overwhelmed with pounds of notebooks and hours of grading at the end of the unit. Missed the link? Here it is again: POETRY NOTEBOOK

    Your awsner lifts the intelligence of the debate.

  2. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
