Connecting Creativity Series
Found Poetry: Found Around Me, Found By Me
This learning quest works to incorporate current event as inspiration and starting point for poetic creation using a found poetry format. A found poem combines powerful phrases and words from two or more texts to create a new text. Through the design process, students reach a deeper understanding of their chosen texts. Students have to know the world to care about the world. The world always delivers a conceptual connection to our curriculum, we only need to enter the world to benefit. World events have the power to incite emotion, and that emotional connection serves as a springboard for writing. Found Poetry: Found Around Me, Found By Me invites students to make sense of the world around them, both past and present, fiction and non-fiction, to create for a purpose inspired by their interests and passions.
