Once students draft their poems, we're expecting one strong metaphor. This could be a metaphor to show an experience from your life, a metaphor to show what your life has been like, a metaphor that shows an abstract feeling you've experienced (love, sorrow, happiness), or a metaphor to show a place you've been, like the beach but shown in a different way.
Wondering about the requirements for the full poem? See the "A" section on the rubric below. Here's the rubric and a link to the full file.
