Voice/Persona Poems
(grades 4-8)
 
  Students of all ages write exciting poems when invited to step outside their bodies, and take on a different voice. Our brainstorming models fun and eccentric ways to put on a mask, and speak as an animal, inanimate object, different character, etc. Students have a great time performing these poems!
