Today we’ll start the poetry unit.
During writing units, I’ll start with a mini lesson (today’s is about concrete images using a poem called Killing Mark by Richard Blanco).
Then you’ll write. Essentially, for this unit, you’re writing five NEW poems this week–specific details about the assignment are linked here.
What about revisions from last week’s workshop? Yeah, we’ll hold off on those. We have a revision week where you’ll spend time reworking ALL your stuff. But I try to have some time in between, since it helps to get some distance from the work. 🙂
