Share a poem about your most influential teacher…
For the poets out there, I challenge you to compose an original poem about that teacher from your past who made a difference. In Nikki Grimes’ awesome chapter book, Bronx Masquerade, students share important life moments in the form of short narratives, and then those same students tell the same stories in the form of short poems. This is a great revision activity; if your students have written a narrative, challenge them to turn it into a poem with the same message.
No rules for these poems to post here. Simply capture your teacher’s impact with a poem that celebrates him/her.
