American Rhythms

Students combine elements of music with poetry.  For this creative writing lesson, students examine poems from a variety of authors with varying writing styles.  Students explore the different elements of poetry, including tone, rhythm, and various types of figurative language.  They work in groups to add musical elements to Mary Austin poems.  Students expand on this activity by creating their own poems using the Native American style of writing.
