In this writing workshop, students learn about how poems are structured and some of the major forms. They read mentor texts and then experiment with creating their own poems. McKenzie guides students throughout the creative process, using read-aloud texts, genre discussions, craft-based workshops, and hands-on activities for aspiring writers.
