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.
