Comic Poetry Sketch (LA)

$15.00

April in every year is both National Humor Month and National Poetry Month. Soooo, this Meridian Stories Challenge attempts to honor both! Create a comic sketch that successfully communicates the basic rules that govern three different kinds of poetry.

Description

This challenge asks students to explore both the elements of comedy and poetry. First, they must create a comic skit that successfully communicates the basic rules that govern three different kinds of poetry. The three different kinds of poetry are up to the team (or teacher, if desired). The skit must communicate three defining characteristics of each poetic form. The skit can be about any topic of your choosing. Second, the team must investigate the elements of comedy, exploring character development, exaggeration, plot structure, setting and format. In the end, this is a rich Challenge that mixes the basics of one form for writing with the application of another.
