The second lesson in the Storyteller’s Project series related to identity.
I read aloud a poem, “The Photograph” from My Name is Jorge: On Both Sides of the River by Jane Medina. We tied the idea that the author wrote about a photograph (a memory) to our over arching theme of collections.
I played two short pieces of music and students identified how each piece made them feel. We discussed how poetry was about feelings and emotions and how poetry was similar to music in that regard.
Students then wrote “I am” poems. Along with their heart maps, their “I am” poems are kept in their writer’s notebooks so that they have a place to collect ideas for future writing pieces.
