    • Instructions:
      • Organization: Organize the lines in the way that they make the most sense and have the most powerful effect. (Consider what effect you want your poem to have, and work to that end. Remove lines that don’t work; add others that do.)
      • Word choice: Express yourself exactly! Use cool, unique, specific language – not the expected, overused clichés; if it is a common phrase, find a better way to say it. Use strong verbs.
      • Wordpool – Use some of those words, too!
      • The element of surprise/unexpected – Are there some surprises?
      • Spacing – Make it look like a poem on the page. (ONE page only, please!)
      • Title – Give it one. If you like “Where I’m From,” use that; otherwise, something more appropriate.
      • Name of Poet – That’s you. Your name should appear somewhere on the page, but not part of a heading. Under the title or at the end is best. If you include the word "by" before your name, do not capitalize it and do not put a colon after it.
      • Conventional issues: Punctuation (Do you want any? If so, it should be used correctly.); Capitalization (ditto)

    • Life Soundtrack Revisions: Due (on class wiki) by May 14th!
    • Stargirl Triptych: In Chapter 3, Leo follows Stargirl into the desert. Since Leo is the first-person narrator, we only know what he is thinking during this scene. Let's examine some of the other possible points of view. Select some cool, poetic words from the wordpool we created last week and write a triptych (three short poems) that represents other points of view in the scene: Stargirl, a third-person omniscient narrator, and one of your choice. (For example, you could write one from the point of view of Cinnamon the rat or from the point of view of the person inside the house where Stargirl delivered the "Congratulations!" card. You could even make up a character or include elements from the scene that aren't in the book. Be creative.) Weave this image into each of the poems to give them something in common even though they are all from different points of view: "She was walking directly into the setting sun, now a great orange perched atop the mountain crests" (p.17). Don't use the same words, but make sure each poem refers to that image of the sun over the desert mountains...like Courtney's picture.

    • Sign My Yearbook...this time the real one!
    • School's Out for Summer!




    "Did I miss anything?" This is the most annoying question students who have been absent can ask. My usual sarcastic reply is something like this: "Oh, heck no! We knew you were gone, so we just sat around all day and looked at each other. You don't really think I'm going to assign work on a day you're not here, do you?" So, in order to keep everyone (students and their parents) apprised of what exactly is going on each day in class, I am going to put it here. Check back often!
