Examine voice and word choice in poetry with this Six Traits of Writing instructional activity. After listening to Love that Dog by Sharon Creech and The Red Wheel Barrow by William Carlos William, middle schoolers create their own sixteen-word poems beginning with "So much depends upon..." They model their work after William's poem, and use the established theme as a basis for a short story.
