This week, Upper School students are having a blast ripping pages out of an old, unwanted Twilight book, and really going to town with their Sharpies to make some excellent blackout poetry. The finished poem consists of the words on the page that were *not* blacked out. Instead of just leaving the scribbled pages lying around the library, we posted the finished poems on the bulletin board, along with some blank pages just waiting to turn into art, and opened up the blackout poetry fun to anyone who wanted to participate. The final product:
Students in Mrs. Engles’ Creative Writing classes have gotten in on the fun as well! A few of her classes enjoyed making blackout poetry to get ready for Poetry Out Loud.
*Note to all: DO NOT make blackout poetry with books that don’t belong to you!
