Poetry About Ourselves
This set of Cerca Slides is underpinned by the key question, “How do writers use poetry to tell stories about their own lives?”
Students explore point of view, sensory details, and figurative language by analyzing autobiographical poems. Then, students write their own poems on topics ranging from influential figures in their lives to explorations of memory.
