Choose Whitman’s (52) or Dickinson’s (479) poem to make a one-pager. Add 2-4 or more lines of poetry to the page. Add a reaction / summary / analysis / interpretation of the lines of poetry / the poem. Fill the page with drawings / images from magazines / color / etc.
We will be memorizing and reciting these poems during the week of Holly Daze (12/05 – 12/08). Choose one of them to present to the class from memory. This will be a major assignment worth 100 points. Choosing not to do it will seriously hurt your grade. Doing it well will seriously help your grade. 😀 25 points extra credit for performing your poem in the talent show or for doing an additional creative / group performance. 10 points extra credit for volunteering to go before Monday 12/05.
