Poetry Revisions

11 Feb

Friday-
Highlight diction and verbs
Diction (words that aren’t working for me)
Verbs (strengthen or tense/endings)
Comment for things that are missing
Don’t go back to fix these things yet. Just highlight them.

Tuesday-
Mark the most important image in the piece.
Mark the weakest image in the piece. How can you add more sensory detail to that image to make it stronger?
Start revising the things you marked on Friday.
