Assignment: Write one haiku, one sonnet (English style--ababcdcdefefgg), and one poem of the student's choice (free verse, limerick or other style / 8 line minimum.) Poems should each be written and illustrated on separate pieces of paper. These will be inserted in the student's portfolio, so the size of the paper is important.
Tuesday--Work on poetry
Wednesday--Work on poetry
Thursday--Poems due at the end of the hour. (total 100 points)
Tuesday: 5th hour will be a study hall; 7th hour will be the Bible final (regardless of where the students go during 7th hour). The English final will be on Thursday during the 5th hour study hall (regardless of where the students go during 5th hour). It will be a low-key final over grammar which will not require much study in advance. Students may use the remainder of the hour as a study hall.
