  3. POETRY PROJECT – Read through the green instruction sheet to remind yourself of what is required for your project. ¬†Brainstorm possible themes for the project and come to class with at least ONE theme that you could focus your whole project on. ¬†Word of advice: choose a theme that you like that is broad, rather than narrow/too specific, so you don’t limit your writing options- ex. life, growing up, friendship, travel, etc.
  4. Do your quiz corrections!
