Section 1:© Mud and Ink Teaching, 2017Section 1:FORMPOETRYFORMPOETRYPoetry with rhyme, stanza, and meter requirements. These can be great for students that like rules and being told “what to do”, but beware! Sometimes students will write just to accomplish the basics of the form, not always to express their most creative selves. Look at form as a challenge to get writing going, but not as an end-all, be-all for poetry.
