Instructional Ideas

  • Have class members craft their own alliterative poem using Brooks' as a model
Classroom Considerations

  • Gwendolyn Brooks' poem "We Real Cool," while not included in the resource, is available online
  • While designed for sophomores, the activity is appropriate for most grade levels

  • The worksheet provides writers with five prompts for the alliterative sentences

  • The activity does not explore the poetic effects of alliteration
