Exploring the Real World: Discussing Poetry and Publishing Poems Lesson Plan
Initiating their own questions about meaning and content, students will read and analyze poetry. They will ask and answer questions during fishbowl-style discussions with their classmates and use the writing process to create original poetry, including brainstorming, editing, and drafting.
