Subject: English Language Arts (9 - 12)
Title: The ABCs of Poetry
URL: http://readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/abcs-poetry-988.html
Description:

This activity allows students to play with words and letters in an imaginative way. Students make the familiar strange by creating image pools of metaphor derived from a single letter in the alphabet. As a class, students look at a letter and brainstorm things that it looks like. They then flip the letter on its sides and upside down, brainstorming new images each time. Next, they brainstorm interesting words that start with that letter. They then put some of the words they have brainstormed together as a poem. After creating the poem as a class, students write their own letter poems, using the same process. Students can use an online tool to publish their poems in a class book. As a group exercise, this activity builds community: everyone learns from each other. As an individual exercise, it builds confidence and allows everyone the chance to create an original chain of images.
