A Meta-Cognitive Journal About Writing… Plus Other Stuff

A Found Poem

with one comment

I recently poked around a copy of a PowerPoint presentation I was given.  I looked for words or phrases that caught my attention, and came up with about 25.  I wrote them out and started looking for patterns in the list.  Pretty soon, I fixated on a group of words that shared a recurring sound.  I found a few other chunks of phrases and sentences to throw in, scratched out a few drafts, and came up with a found poem.  I should do this more often.

What the ROE* Had to Say

Our comprehension of the literature compels us to convey to you that your zip code is a guidepost to how you will be stranded upon completion of our summative assessments.  We felt it best to share out these disparate standards.  Questions?  Thank You!!
