POEMS- 3 Found Poems

To begin the POETRY UNIT, I want you to CREATE A BLOG. On this blog you can make your FIRST POST entitled: 3 FOUND POEMS.

  1. Your task: To find 3 poems that you appreciate in some way.
  2. Create a blog (if you haven't already) and on the first post, copy 3 poems you like (no songs yet!). Be sure to give credit to the author and the website. (give the link and author for example)
  3. You could include Slam poems and videos of poetry readings, but I would like to see the words on the page written out so we can use it for discussion.
  4. You may also include pics that somehow represent your poem; but again, please give credit to sources. Copying things onto your blog is fine as long as you don't make any profit from your blog. 
  5. Also, use first name only and no personal pics or personal videos please. 
  6. After each poem include a short personal essay about why you chose that poem. A personal essay is simply your reflection on the process you went to find poems and the reasons you chose each of your 3. I say 'essay' because you want lots of paragraphs for ease of reading. You may use first person, of course, but use good sentence formation. Consider spelling and communication. After all, people are going to read this!!!!  No text shortcuts and put capitals where needed. May I suggest you find a good proof reader for peer editing.
  7. Email me the link to your blog. And make sure your blog allows other people to make comments on your posts.
  8. In class we can create a rubric together on how I will evaluate these blogs.
