Friday’s Blackout Poems


A BIG THANK YOU to all of the Blackout Poets out there that joined in and Blackout Poetry Week! I’m here one last time to recognize some stellar student work and  Jason Stephenson will wrap things up tomorrow, so be on the look out for his post.

 Mr. Pollock’s students submitted more poems today,  and like I said yesterday, they are truly a great example of a #blackoutpoet classroom!  If you haven’t already, check out the #blackoutpoets hashtag to see them all and use them in your own classroom as stellar examples! Here are a few that really stood out today. I can’t say thanks enough to Mr. Pollock and his student poets for participating!

This HS history class made an ebook from #blackoutpoets based on Paine’s Common Sense. Yeah, it’s pretty amazing, @KerryHawk02 Thank you for sharing.

And last, but not least, I wanted to give a quick shout out to my own middle school student #blackoutpoets, who worked so hard this week on their poems. I am one very proud teacher!
