Language Arts: Ode to the Ordinary

Eighth graders select ordinary objects, determine their uses, and write poems about them. Once they select an object, they create a web about its uses to serve as an outline. Once they have written their own odes, 8th graders meet in revision groups to share and discuss their works.
