Poetry Portfolio   

Poetry Portfolio

For this last 6 weeks, I wanted to focus in depth on a skill we have not had much time to focus on, poetry. We will be learning about different types of poetry and studying examples of each type. We will then be using our knowledge of each type of poetry and making a portfolio of poems. Each student will write their own poem for each type of poetry and then put those poems in a folder or notebook (their portfolio).

I have certain requirements regarding the poetry portfolio.

-Poems MUST be in a folder or notebook.

-Poems must be written neatly or typed. 

-Each page needs to be numbered 

-You may add designs or pictures to the poems, but they must relate to the poem and be school appropriate.

-The poems you decide to write must be school appropriate.

-We will be having a coffee house event one day where the students will read one poem from their collection in front of the class.

 

Your poetry portfolio must be set up in this order:

1.   Cover(either on front of notebook if it has a sleeve) or Title page(in front of table of contents)

The cover and title page must be in this order:

Poetry Portfolio

Your name

Your period

Ex:

Poetry Portfolio

Joe Jacks

6th period

 

2.   Table of Contents

3.   Your nine poems arranged in this order(and pages are numbered!):

   -Acrostic(Word must be at least 5 letters long, Each letter needs to have 2 or more words/phrases)

   -Concrete (Must have at least 5 lines and must be in shape of topic of poem)

   -Limerick(5 lines, Lines 1, 2, and 5 must rhyme with each other, Lines 3 and 4 must rhyme with each other)

  -Cinquian (5 lines and must follow cinquian format)
