Name: ______________________________________________________ Date: _______________ Poetry Project In Love That Dog, Jack was inspired by the poems Miss Stretchberry shared with class. You are going to use the same poems as your inspiration. There are project choices below. You will be completing this project in class. The attached rubric will be used for grading. All assignments must have a title. Time, effort, and creativity are important! All projects are due 10-28-10. Choice 1 “The Red Wheelbarrow” by William Carlos William William Carlos Williams paints a picture for us using specific vivid words. Following his style, create your own poem. The first two lines should be, “So much depends upon,” and must include at least six more lines. Write a draft, edit it, then type the final copy. Choice 2 “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” by Robert Frost This poem by Robert Frost features stanzas that are four lines long. This poem, like many of his poems, is about nature. This poem also rhymes. Create a poem in a similar style that features 4-line stanzas that rhyme. Choose a topic that has to do with something in nature that you love. Write at least two stanzas. Write a draft, edit it, then type the final copy. Choice 3 “The Tiger” by William Blake William Blake uses a style of poetry in which each stanza features four lines, and each line features seven syllables and rhymes. Create a poem about an animal that is written in the same style. Then illustrate the poem. Be sure to create a draft first and edit it. You may write or type the poem. Illustrations must be original. Choice 4 “Dog” by Valerie Worth In class, we discussed how this “small poem” (as Jack calls it) is like a snapshot. Create a piece of art, that shows what you visualize when you read this poem. Choice 5 “Street Music” by Arnold Adoff This poem uses onomatopoeia to describe a place (a city street). Choose a place and write a poem of at least ten lines that uses at least five examples of onomatopoeia. Create a draft, edit it, then type the final copy. Choice 6 “The Apple” by S.C. Rigg This poem is a concrete poem. It uses words to create a shape based on the topic of the poem. Create your own concrete poem. Draft it first and edit as necessary. Your final copy may be written or typed. Choice 7 “Love That Boy” by Walter Dean Myers Jack uses some of Walter Dean Myer’s words in his own poem. Think about the things, people or animals that you love. Pick three, then write three poems, as Jack did, using Walter Dean Myer’s style and some of his words. Draft and edit the poem, then type the final copy. Rubric Criteria Score 5,4,3,2,1,0 Did you follow the assignment directions? Creativity and word choice.
