During our Poetry Unit my students create portfolios. These portfolios include poems that they enjoyed, lyrics to songs and poems that they have written in and out of class.
I have been able to get some great work out my students through this project. It really helps them to apply the things that they have learned about poetry.
Here is a list of the items I require in their portfolio:
- Cover Page
- Table of Contents
- Glossary of Poetry Terms
- Five Poems with Poetic Devices Highlighted and Explained
- Five Original Poems that They Wrote
- One Song with an Analysis of Poetic Devices Used
Here are some pictures from some of the portfolios I have received:
To teach song analysis I used Tracee Ormans Freebie “Firework” by Katy Perry Song Lyrics Poetry Terms
I have the rubric/checklist for this project available in my TPT store: Poetry Portfolio Culminating Project
