Reflection: Student Ownership Point of View & Structure - Poetry Lesson 2 - Section 3: Group Work


The activity can be modified and used in several different ways, but the key for me is the ownership and interaction involved.  I want students to interact with poetry, reading, discussing, analyzing and sharing.

I also want students to take ownership of their learning when possible and this allows for that.  They chose the poem, share the poem, etc.  It's always interesting to see what they chose.

If you do not have poetry books available check out your local library.  They can even get them for you through interlibrary loans when needed.  You could also make an small anthology for each group by printing poems from online sources.
