Today I introduced the Poetry Portfolio that will showcase six poems that you’ve written during our poetry unit in humanities. Please use this checklist and rubric for your reference.
For this portfolio, you’ll be writing six poems. You will write one ballad, one limerick, one acrostic, one cinquain, and two poems of your choice. The two free choice poems must be different. The portfolio will include one poem for each of the four essential questions, one poem about Catherine, Called Birdy, and one free choice topic.
Use the chart to help you keep track of what types and topics you are writing!
The poems that you turn in should be your top quality work. The point of this portfolio is to demonstrate that you can write a variety of different poems while showing what you have learned about the Middle Ages and CCB. QUALITY > speed.
In addition to compiling your portfolio, you will be reading one select poem, the best of your best, to the class and recording it to post on your blog. Be prepared. next week we will discuss how to effectively read poems. We’ll also have the mac laptops so you can film and post your poem.
