POETRY Notebook – Product and Performance

Check ListPoetry Notebook


Looking 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.   Here’s a link to student handout to show how they can use Poetry T.I.M.E. to prepare to talk or write about a poem.

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, including poems they write as patterns (PANTOUM and NARRATIVE), and as original compositions, and those they choose to recite on celebration day!

I invite you to see in my books (on right) 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.
