At this point you are studying the form and structure of poetry. You will be reading a wide variety of poetic styles including traditional poetic styles. Some will be like the sonnet and haiku, both of which have a specific length and rhythmic pattern; others will be more unconventional free verse, and even more modern examples can be found in “street poetry” or poetry “slams”. Contemporary poets often use a combination of several styles, as exhibited in the poetry of more contemporary poets like Robert Frost, Langston Hughes, and others of the 20th and 21st centuries.After you have completed the assignment, don’t forget to write your learning experience piece for the portfolio by answering the questions in the Overview about your personal observations on your learning. There is nothing to submit for your personal observations on the writing until Module 05, but you should write the 1-page observation each week and copy and paste it into your writing portfolio. That way, you do not feel rushed at the end of the term.Step One: Construct your original poems by following the guidelines below. Be sure to write your poems in Times New Roman 12 pt. font and double space the poem. Your poem should also have a title at the top of the poem. Each poem should be on its own separate page. You should have at least 3 original poems (4 if haiku) for this assignment. You should also label the poetic style you are employing in a line underneath the title. Prior to starting, read some poetry and take note of the ones you like best. These examples can be used as models to guide you through this process of creating your own poems.What poetic style is my poem to be written in?How many lines will my poem be?What is the subject matter of my poem?What is the theme of my poem?
