Imagery in Poetry


Click the “full screen” icon to view poems.

We invite you to read some of the poems we crafted after a study of imagery in mentor texts “The Shark” by Edwin Pratt, “Abandoned Farmhouse” by Ted Kooser, “Poppies” by Roy Scheele and “When It Is Snowing” by Siv Cedering. Students were invited to pattern their poems after the work of the published poets.

As students worked on their poems, they were asked “What do you want your reader to feel?”  The answer informed the use of imagery, and all that goes into that: details, word choice, graphic elements, and more.

These are some of the efforts of the second week of school. We look forward to sharing more as we learn more in the months ahead!
