5/12/16 - Practice reading your color poem.  You will need to project your voice and read slowly and clearly, with the proper tone and rhythm.  Consider eye contact and mark your poem accordingly (discussed in class).  If you have not finished your reflection page, please do so.

5/2/16 - Bring in your Color Poem rough draft tomorrow (typed or written).  Make sure you include the title, poem and your name centered at the bottom.  Pick your font and size (title, poem and name must fit on one sheet of paper).  You will edit and revise before printing your final copy.  DUE tomorrow 5/3/16.  You worked on these in class and had a couple of weeks to type them at home.
