This lesson is for students to apply what they have gained from the study of Carl Sandburg and their poetic analysis. They will be writing a piece of poetry, modeled after Carl Sandburg’s poetry, capturing the experience of a worker they know.
The students will be able to:
- Compose a piece of poetry
- Share their poem(s) with their colleagues
5. Students employ a wide range of strategies as they write and use
different writing process elements appropriately to communicate with
different audiences for a variety of purposes.
6. Students apply knowledge of language structure, language conventions
(e.g., spelling and punctuation), media techniques, figurative language,
and genre to create, critique, and discuss print and non-print texts.

Concept 1: Expressive
Expressive writing includes personal narratives, stories, poetry, songs,
and dramatic pieces. Writing may be based on real or imagined events.
Poetry (from the Greek "πο?ησις," poiesis, a "making" or "creating") is a form of verbal art in which language is used for its aesthetic and evocative qualities in addition to, or in lieu of, its ostensible meaning. Poetry may be written independently, as discrete poems, or may occur in conjunction with other arts, as in poetic drama, hymns or lyrics. Poetry, and discussions of it, has a long history. Early attempts to define poetry, such as Aristotle's Poetics, focused on the uses of speech in rhetoric, drama, song and comedy. [TAKEN FROM WIKIPEDIA]
