Blackout Poems in 6th Grade Core w/Ebanks!


Black Out Poetry is a way that allows emerging poets to “let the poetry find you.” Blackout poetry focuses on rearranging words to create a different meaning. blackout poem is when a poet takes a marker (usually black marker) to already established text–like in a newspaper–and starts redacting words until a poem is formed.

We first learned how to do this with Michelle Holdt in the ILSP-A course.  This course allows us to integrate art into every facet of ELA instruction and keep instruction relevant and fun for all students! – Ms. Ebanks
