I love making blackout poems! You can just take a page of a book, magazine, or newspaper that you don't plan on using anymore, and then blackout the words you don't want to create your own poem/story! It's fun.
you make everyone else everyone else. This made me think of a form of poetry I've seen before. You take a newspaper story and black out almost everything except the words you choose for the poem. Great creative writing strategy!
Brave New World p. 23 Fantastic lesson idea. Copy pages from the novel, distribute to students and have them black out text, the remaining words will become a poem. (Could do this with a lot of different books!)
