Reading and Writing Reflection #8

This week’s Reading Reflection is just as you would expect it to be:

Reading Reflection (250 Words)
Remember to start your post with:

Reading Reflection #8

Book: Lone Wolf
Author: Jodi Picoult
Pages Read: 74-130
And fill your reflection with the usual questions, comments, predictions, connections, etc . . .

However your Writing Reflection will focus on Blackout Newspaper Poetry and be a bit longer than usual, as I’d like your reflection to be about 250 words in length this week.

Topics to discuss:

– Discuss the process of writing Newpaper Blackout Poetry. How did it go for you? What were some of the challenges and successes?

– What was unique about this way of writing (compared to the other types of writing we’ve done this semester; listogrpahy, doodling, six word memoirs, moments)?

– What did you learn about yourself as a reader/writer/thinker?

– Other comments about this style of writing?

We’re on Instagram!!

Hello everyone,

In class this week we’ve been working on Newspaper Blackout Poetry.  As you’ve all been busy scribbling away, I’ve been snapping photos of you (that sounds kind of creepy now that I’ve written it . . .) Anyways, I posted a photo of your hard work on Instagram, and Austin Kleon (author of the poetry book Newspaper Blackout Poetry) “hearted” it. See pic below:

Here’s two videos to give somebackground:

So here we go!
  • You are going to create a trio of Newspaper Blackout Poetry. 
  • All poems in the trio must relate to one another through a common theme. 
  • Each poem must have a title.
  • Your poems are going to be displayed in three ways: On the walls in the hallway, on your blog, and submitted to Austin Kleon’s blog.
Ready, set, blackout!
