Learning from students: The list poem

Here's another example from my adult students sharing poetry with young people in my "learning from my students' students" series. 

Here, Mayra got the students involved in PowerPack 11 of Here We Go and they had fun with it.

First, she tried the PowerPlay activity with her high school students. They considered a list of possible community service activities, chose one, and created a poster or model for carrying out that activity.

Then she created original digital poem postcards for each of the three poems in the PowerPack. Here is a digital postcard for the anchor poem by David L. Harrison:

Then, she shared the response poem a student wrote in relation to the mentor text poem in free verse.
