LOs for a poetry class:
respond to works of contemporary poets
identify poetic techniques
The student will visit the website
http://www.griffinpoetryprize.com/ and select a poet whose work they will analyze. The Griffin poetry website provides samples of poets long-listed for the Griffin Prize, a significant award showcasing the work of Canadian and International writers. The student will write a response to a poem and post a link to it. This activity will be performed on Moodle Forum, with each student providing a post available to class. This way the entire class has an “anthology” of recent, high quality poetry that provides an overview of a range of poetic styles.
