To give Pre-AP Spanish students time to finish studying “Two Words” by Allende – AND perhaps to create an erasure poem or found poem from the story’s first page, I’ve extended the poem challenge deadline to Friday, May 12th.
If you haven’t heard of erasure or found poems before, here are examples of each:
- Two erasure poems from Mary Ruefle’s Little White Shadow
- A found poem of mine, “The Training of the Hand,” published in December. A brief introduction describes the source texts; all the words in the poem are from those sources. I selected, sequenced, and arranged them to create the poem.
