This Poetry Anthology Project allows students to explore famous poetry on a chosen theme, along with trying their own hand at writing some poems. This is the perfect project to conclude your poetry unit, and students will create an artifact to treasure. I have had the most success with asking students to collect 3-5 poems and writing 2-3 on their own, depending on the grade level. For each poem, students write a personal reflection and choose a photograph or create an illustration to accompany it. This product is fully editable and comes with an analytic and holistic rubric (grades 6-10).
What You Get:
1. Print-and-go project guidelines
2. Holistic rubric
3. Student examples (you can edit the teacher’s notes)
4. Editable guidelines and rubric (.doc)
If you have any questions, I’d love to hear from you!
