Learning from students: Odes

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

We're looking at how they interacted with You Just Wait: A Poetry Friday Power Book using each PowerPack to see how young writers responded.

Then Joy created original digital poem postcards for each of the three poems in PowerPack 11. First, here is her slide for the "anchor" poem by Jen Bryant:

Then, she shared the response poem she wrote in relation to the mentor text poem-- a ode!

Finally, Joy also recommended more books of sports poetry and fun websites that students might enjoy in her resources slide:
