6th Grade Poetry Project

Combine writing, reading, speaking, and listening with one comprehensive assignment. Budding poets put together books or portfolios of poems, literary terms, and other listed assignments. Part of the project is to select a poem to read out loud during a coffee house day. The final books will include original poetry, poetry terms, 20 other poems, either original or by another author, and a brief essay.

Pros

  • Covers many different types of poetry and requires other forms of expression and writing in addition to poetry
  • Encourages pupils to write their own poetry and read poetry written by others
Cons

  • Some poems and pages to be included in the book are specific to the class the project was created for, so you may wish to edit the Word document
  • Does not include a final rubric, but does come with a complete list of items students should include and a basic timeline for the process
