Writing Assignment Description

In this performance task, students synthesize their learning about what inspires poets to write poetry by presenting their own original poems inspired by something meaningful, along with a speech, including supporting visuals, about what inspired their poem and where you can see evidence of this in their poem. Their speech answers the question: What inspired you to write poetry, and where can you see evidence of this in your poem? This task centers on CCSS ELA SL.4.4 and SL.4.5.
