Reflection: Homework What is Poetry? - Section 3: Color Poem


I do not assign completion of the poem as homework and do not set a deadline for completion. Some students can get right into the flow of this creative genre, but others struggle with it. Rather than have them give up and end up disliking poetry altogether, I use this assignment as something to come back to whenever time allows.
