We also offered the opportunity to compose a poetic response to learner choice novels. What a fantastic way to encourage readers to engage with the text! The connections are so much more authentic and impactful than reading a more traditional book report or even book review.
Kerosene Soaked World (SoundCloud) by Rebecca Carroll, a poetic response to Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury from the perspective of Guy Montag.
Trauma (SoundCloud) by Emily White and Lupeny Garza, a poetic response to A Soldier’s Secret by Marissa Moss.
