Found Poetry

  • These students created a Found/Blended Poem from five early American documents starting with the Mayflower Compact, John Winthrop’s thesis A Model of Christian Charity, Declaration of Independence, United States Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.  I separated the last two out to point out that the Bill of Rights came after the Constitution was ratified.  

    The task was to capture and display what the American Identity is & how they would explain it to a foreign visitor, through the use of the five documents noted above.  Enjoy your reading.  Any comments will be relayed to my students.  Thank you.
