Biographies of Poets

I came across some "old" scholastic posters that were in my closet about biographies of famous people.  To keep my theme of poetry for the week, I gave students a list of poets for them to research on the internet and create a poster about his/her life.  Students REALLY enjoyed this activity and were excited to report to one another about the information they found.  The most popular poet???  Maya Angelou!  Very proud so many students found interest in this wonderful lady's life.  :)

             Briley Finster: Maya Angelou

  Mason Green:  Maya Angelou, too!!
