Learning from students: Internal rhyme

Here's another example from my adult students sharing poetry with young people in my "learning from my students' students" series. 

We're looking at how they interacted with You Just Wait: A Poetry Friday Power Book using each PowerPack to see how young writers responded.

First, she tried the PowerPlay activity with students. The student considered the "PROS" and "CONS" of being new. Here:
