Reflection: Poetry: Writing Concrete Poems - Section 2: Mini-Lesson


Before students decide on their topic, we ask them to sketch a few shapes that they are thinking about. That way, they can see which of their sketches will best fit a poem. Once they’ve made their choice, then I can support them in writing the poetry to match it. A Concrete poem does not have to rhyme or follow any patterns. The challenge comes in helping students to pull the beautiful language from their descriptions of their topics and put into poetry form that can later fit into their sketches.
