Senior Poetry Anthology 2014

My students need paper and ink, with covers and combs to bind their work into an anthology.

My Students

These seniors have been coached by a published poet to write their own poetry, and we want to bind our poems into an anthology for each to have a copy of all classmates' poems. A public poetry reading will be held in April for students to present their poetry orally as well.

We are a rural high school of about 550 students with a class of about 140 seniors.

Many of these students have had little exposure to the value of poetry, and some have never had their work published in something like an anthology. This student population will include college bound seniors as well as AP students.

My Project

Students will write 2 poems each and then write a class poem under the guidance of a published poet who donates her time. Students will then print out poems and assemble into an anthology for each to have. Poetry forms will include an ode or elegy and a sonnet. Students will not only have ownership of their poems, but also of the assembly of the anthology. Students will print using the class printer with ink provided through Donors Choose, and then with the binder we already have, students will hole punch and assemble the booklets by installing the binder combs. Through cooperative teamwork 100 anthologies will be assembled so each students has his or her own.

Students will have increased awareness of different types of poetry and the value of an anthology.

Students will learn how to present poetry both orally to a live audience and then in printed format.
