Content Objective: I can identify and apply poetic structure in writing my own poetry.
Language Objective: I will write my own structured opposite poems mimicking the structure of William Blake's "Introduction to Songs of Innocence and Experience".
I will write a collaborative haiku story based on images and group input.
1. You have 30 minutes to finish up your Opposite Poems. One has to use the same structure as "Introduction to Songs of Innocence" and one the same as "Introduction to Songs of Experience."
2. Before turning in your poems, share your poems out loud with your group and get input on the following:
- Check Structure:
- Stanza count
- Lines per stanza
- Syllable count per line
- rhyme scheme
- Input on content: Anything that could be improved/added or cut
3. Intro/Details about Haiku Structure
4. Haiku Story write-around: Start with the image assigned to your group. You have 5 minutes to come up with a haiku based on this image before sharing your work with the person to your left who will continue your haiku story by adding a haiku to yours and so on. We will repeat this six times.
