Write two paragraphs, one for each topic, one for "something new" and one for "something memorable." You may mention multiple examples or expand on one example. Your paragraphs should be a minimum of 150 words and maximum of 200 words for each topic.
Be specific and detailed in your writing. Use your best sentences and proofread carefully. Work is due before class time on Wednesday, June 11. Post here and bring a copy, properly formatted, to class to hand in that day. Thank you everyone.
My comments will follow yours and will be posted before the end of next week.

NOTE: Check your formatting carefully after copy and pasting poem. You'll need to add spacing. Try to have your poem look exactly the same as the original handout if you can!

To help you find a poem, here are three online sources of quality poetry. Remember that you will need to defend the poem's quality in group work that day, so be sure to choose well.
Poems at Slate.com (each poem is read by the poet; a good way to decide if you like the way it sounds)
Canadian Poetry Online (from the University of Toronto library; a list of poets that links to poems from each one)
Poetry Daily Archive (alphabetical archive of poems by title; here you can look for an interesting title and see if you can find a poem you like)
IMPORTANT: Find the missing page from your assignment for writing a list poem in the first comment. It includes two sample poems from Grade 11 students and the original poem by Szymborska (which corrects a mistake on "to seek the least of all possible mistakes" instead of "to see." Be sure to take a look.

View two or three examples of RSAnimates and then choose the one you find most persuasive.
In a paragraph, explain why you find it persuasive (in a way, persuade us that we should also watch it!). Post your paragraph here (150 to 200 words) before coming to class.
Be sure to bring your work to class, word processed, next Wednesday.
