Why Lesson Planet?
This is a very much detailed five-day plan on writing portrait poems. Throughout, class members review figurative language and work systematically to develop their poems. The teacher provides rubrics for the poem as well as a portrait they create in art class. It is supposed to reveal significant characteristics of the person they select as their subject. The lesson plan relates to the children's book Grandpa's Face by Floyd Cooper, but it is not integral. Related materials may not be accessible.
