Chapter 10

B. Find a song which tells a story. Write down who the characters are, what the plot is, what the conflict is, and what the theme is.

C. Find a narrative poem in a literature book and read it aloud. Write down who the characters are, what the plot is, what the conflict is, and what the theme is.

D. Write another narrative poem, rhymed or un-rhymed, of at least six stanzas.

Work with a partner to write the poem and draw at least one illustration for each stanza.


Perform your poem for your writing group. One person reads the poem while the other shows the illustrations. If you are not a part of a writer's group, do it anyway. It is a fun exercise.

E. Write a narrative poem in comic strip form with at least 12 panels. Make your protagonist a super hero or super heroine.

F. Write a narrative poem which represents your best effort. Each student reads his narrative poem aloud. The rest of the class votes on the best poem and the best poet wins a prize. The poem must fit into one of the following categories.

1. Supernatural 2. Romance 3. Sports 4. School 5. Adventure 6. Fantasy G. Find a story or movie that you really like and do a narrative poem based on it.
