 Found Poetry Packet by Nouvelle

Get students to understand a fiction or non-fiction text on a deeper level with found poetry. This packet was designed to help students understand, enjoy, and create “found” poetry. “Found” poetry asks students to reshape an existing text into something new. This product is the “found” poem. 

What You Get: 
1. Three sample texts (one fiction, two non-fiction) to introduce the concept to students:  
excerpt from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll 
"Steamboat Burnt" from The National Gazette (1834)
"William Penn" from The National Gazette (1834)

2. Sample "found" poems for each text
3. Brainstorming Worksheets for students to "find" their poems -- adaptable for ANY source text
4. Answer keys
5. Project sheets and rubrics
6. A teacher's guide for each text

Perfect for getting students to reexamine primary sources, novels, and short stories.
