Are you looking for ways to connect abstract ideas and writing? Do the terms “tone” and “voice” need a boost in your students’ writing pieces? Help your students translate the writing styles of Markus Zusak’s in the Book Thief and John Donne’s poem entitled “Death Be Not Proud” into the authoring of their own poems. During this lesson, each student will write a poem with poetic devices such as personification, tone, and metaphorical language. Each student will analyze his/her topic, an abstract idea or object that is personally important. Students will also delve deeply into themselves to search for deeper ways to clearly convey a message that the reader of the poem will understand.
