Language Arts Poetry Project   This project incorporates reading, writing, and research skills and helps students to demonstrate mastery and understanding of poetry components. For this project, students choose a topic as their starting point. They then locate (and cite!) three published poems and include analysis of each poem. Next, students write three poems of their own and also research their favorite poet. All of this information is compiled into a creative and organized booklet.
