Learning from students: Question poems

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

Now we're switching gears and looking at how my students and their students interacted with Here We Go: A Poetry Friday Power Book using each PowerPack to see how young writers responded.

Here, Christine got the students involved in PowerPack 3 of Here We Go beginning with this PowerPlay activity that asks students to circle the questions that interest them, cross out those that do NOT, and generate a big question that concerns them.

Next, she created original digital poem postcards for each of the three poems in PowerPack 6. Here is her slide for the "anchor" poem by Carole Boston Weatherford:

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