    Things to double check you have and/or did correctly for your Poetry Project:

    All of your typed information is in Times New Roman, 12pt. Font. Your title page can have larger font.

    Title your poems. You must AT LEAST title the poem with the type of poem it is, but a creative title in addition to that would be a very good idea.

    Print one requirement PER PAGE. Both of your haikus and limericks can be on the same page since they are technically one requirement.

    If you use a photo or any artwork you found online for your cover art you must cite it. Just put the website you got it from in () below it.

    Remember you must include the poem you found online for the TPCAST part of the project in your final draft.

    When you are ready to print you will need to either share the file with me through Office 365,  email it to me, or put in on a flash drive and plug it in to the teacher computer. This lab's printer is not working so you will not be able to print from your computer.

    When you put your project together you need to staple it in the order of the listed items on the very front page of your packet. So title page, then lyric, haiku, ode, etc. Staple the printed poem behind the TPCAST work you completed.

    Remember that it must be printed BEFORE you get to class tomorrow.

    Do NOT forget to still bring your rough draft packet. You will turn that in tomorrow as well.

     

    October 20:

    • Poetry share out day
    • Your ENTIRE project is due at the very start of class.
    • The lab will be open this morning for printing. I suggest you do NOT wait until the last minute because things tend to go wrong the more you put them off!
