We started off the day with the usual exchange of “Hello class!” and “Hello Smith!” (Occasionally a “What’s poppin’ Smith?”). First, Smith collected the photos we brought in, then the DOL and CSAP for this week, and afterward we took our grammar quiz. During the quiz, Smith distributed the photos out to different people for us to write about. Next we read the poem “To An Athlete Dying Young” and compared it to the poem we read yesterday. Smith gave us the rest of the time to write our photograph poem.
Photograph poem- It is a poem using the picture we brought in as homework. We are to write about the two perspectives that can be seen in the photo, the perspective of someone looking at the object in the photograph and the person in the photo. The poem is supposed to use a lot of figurative language such as sight, scent, etc… For exact instructions look at the post that Ms. Smith made on the blog.
