6th Grade Studies Point-of-View Poetry

6th grade students recently studied point-of-view and poetry. Students concluded their reading of “Eric Liddell: Something Greater Than Gold” by creating I AM poems. Students wrote the poem from the perspective of Eric Liddell and incorporated the major themes and events discussed in this biographical novel. It was a great exercise to help students not only draw conclusions about a recent book, but to do so in a creative way that reinforced what they have also learned about poetry.
