‘I Am From’ Poem (LA)


Creative digital project that asks students to explore their individual and collective selves in this classic poetic style.


The I Am From poem template is a simple form that allows students to reflect on themselves in both traditional and non-traditional ways. It’s a format that pushes the boundaries of self-understanding …just a little; just enough to suggest ‘poetry’ and to require substantive self-reflection. When you add a digital layer to this project – the singular or group recording of these poems – the meaning and the experience is manifold.
