Now is your chance to showcase everything you've learned during this poetic exploration! Draw from what you've read, seen, and heard to compose and perform your own poem! You may choose any of the poetic forms discussed during our lessons, and may compose your piece on any topic you choose. After composing, you must also choose a way to present your poem to the class. You may do a live spoken word presentation, or record a video of yourself reciting your poem, and then play it during class. As a follow-up to your performance, you should speak briefly about the intended message and emotion you wanted to communicate with your poem, and the specific measures you took in your composition to do so. Be sure to consult the rubric below.
