Black Out Poetry, Fun Poetry Activity, Blackout Poem Lecture Slides, FREE

Use this visually dynamic tool to get students excited about poetry. No, really, my teens LOVE this blackout poetry creative writing activity. View the 10-slide overview lecture (includes both Prezi and Google Slides versions) and imagine all of the possibilities your students could create.

All you’ll need to fill an entire class session is the slide deck, dark markers or crayons, and a few newspaper pages or photocopies of a few pages from any novel you’re currently teaching.

Includes 10 slides in Prezi and Google Drive versions (uneditable).

Note: This item is included in my budget-priced 4-week High School Poetry Unit that’ll save you more than 20% on a slew of poetry teaching materials.

Thanks for stopping by!
