"The Place My Words Are Looking For"
Poetry Project
:  Poetry Final Project Requirements

Poetry Final Project Requirements

Your final project in poetry will be a unique book of poems that you will put together. This book will consist of three parts. Each part will show what you know about poetry and how you think and write about poems. Before each poem, you will write a short anecdote or description that will enhance the appreciation and understanding of the poems.

Your book will have poems you have written in class and poems you have discovered while reading other works. All work needs to be in final form and many pieces will be illustrated.

PART ONE: Three poems that you have written

  • Before each poem, write an anecdote describing what inspired you to write the poem or what memory led you to create this image with words
  • One poem illustrated

PART TWO: Three poems that you really enjoy out of poetry books or elsewhere

  • Before each poem write an anecdote describing what inspired you to choose this poem

  • One poem illustrated

PART THREE: Three poems that really speak to you. This can be a poem that reminds you of a special memory or some aspect of yourself.
  • Before each poem write an anecdote telling why you chose the poems
  • One poem illustrated.


PART FOUR: Create and illustrate a title page
