Learning about poetry and poets may not sound like a great time for you, but you will be happy you learned the information once you get to college and you are expected to at least recognize the names and titles of famous works

Here's what needs to be included on the poster:
--posters MUST be the size of a half poster board
--biography of the poet
--4 pictures--try using your imagination a little and give me some pictures that have to do with the poems written
--a list of at least 5 poems the poet has written with a brief sentence or two on what each poem was about

On the day the posters are due, you will have a quiz over how
much you know about the poet you researched for that month.
