Ninth Grade Assignment Due Tuesday, October 8
Sunday, October 6, 2013
Write your own short poem (equal in length to perhaps a stanza of “Song of the Smoke”) inspired by W.E.B. DuBois. The first two lines must start with “I am”. Other than that, no restrictions.
If you are not in a mood to write poetry tonight, you may memorize your favorite stanza of “Song of the Smoke” to recite in class tomorrow. It is my hope that enough people will choose this option that we can hear the whole poem.
