Two-Voice Poetry

What is two-voice poetry?  Well, it's poetry that written from two different points of view.  It's read aloud by two different people, each representing one of the points of view.  I ran across this idea recently when I was cleaning out my student teaching files.  Sad, right?

I want to incorporate more poetry into my writing station this year.  Then I found this baby.  As they say on The Big Bang Theory, "Bazinga!"


This is a customizable PowerPoint that can be used at a poetry station or to help the whole class write a two-voice poem. It includes:
  • Instructions
  • Suggested Topics
  • Examples

You can pick up a free copy of this activity at my TpT store.

Do you use literacy stations?  How about a poetry station?  I'd love to hear your examples!

I have 2 of Paul Feishmans books of two voice poetry and another one that is really good. It is for 4 voices. I haven't used them in a couple of years but they were great! the kids loved it! I think the two books were called Joyful Noise, and Pheonix.
