Discovering Your Voice Through Poetry - High School Lesson Plan

Gain confidence in student writing through original poetry
"This lesson plan introduces students to the poetry of Rafael Campo and helps students to find their own voice while gaining confidence in their writing through original poetry. This lesson plan has been created in partnership with the Poetry Foundation and the PBS NewsHour."

A quote from Billy Collins' "Introduction to Poetry":

"But all they want to do
is tie the poem to a chair with rope
and torture a confession out of it."
