Poetry Portfolios

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
