Reflection: Student Ownership Poetry: Alliteration - Section 3: Oral Presentations


Students were able to create alliteration poems much easier using a template or graphic organizer.  At this age, students need to use a guiding question to accomplish writing the required form, structure, theme, rhythm of the poem.  Students at this age need a visual representation as concrete methods to reach the abstract later on when they are ready.  Once students are used to the formatting of this poem, they no longer need the template to guide them.
