The 8th grade poetry unit is based on inspirations that come from various types of art incorporated to practice different poetic elements. The art museum trip is the final piece to our unit. The students apply the skills from the lesson to art in the museum. The docents work with small groups to discuss artists/art work. The students then write poems based on the art. The poems they write will be a part of each students’ individual poetry anthology project. Students will also contribute a poem to a classroom poetry anthology.
