Task

  • Check out the following examples:
  • Write a poem related to our study of WWI using information shared in class over the last several days (Including Life in the Trenches, All Quiet on the Western Front, WWI Scavenger Hunt, and the Great Powers Game).
  • Publish your poem on the WWI Poetry Wiki.
  • Find at least five photographs, paintings, or posters that reflect the content, tone, or theme of your poem or specific sections of your poem. Try experimenting with a table to give you more artist control over the lay-out.
  • Appropriately place your images in your poem.
  • Create proper citations for the works you borrow and include them at the end of the poem.
  • Check you product against the rubric.
