Learning from students: Tercets

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

Here, Jennifer got the students involved in PowerPack 8 of Here We Go with a focus on tercets.

First, she tried the PowerPlay activity with students. They circled every third word in a prose passage and then made a three-line poem using some of those circled words.

Then she created original digital poem postcards for each of the three poems in the PowerPack. Here are two digital postcards for the two response poems by Janet Wong:

Then, she shared the response poem the student wrote in relation to the mentor text poem-- using tercets. Here are two examples.
