Observations from a Classroom
This I know:
change at home’s apropos.
Our kids these days, they need assistance
to handle defeat and to build their resistance
to stay with a task and develop persistence.
They, like rubber bands pulled much too tight,
must, to alter their plight,
learn to fight.
Write a Trois-par-Huit Poem. The poem has eight lines in total. The poem contains three stanzas. Two combinations are possible: 3/3/2 and 3/2/3. The rhyme scheme is A/A/B/B/B/C/C/C. No matter how the stanzas are divided, the rhyme scheme stays the same. The syllable structure is 3,6,9,12,12,9,6,3. The last line summarizes the meaning of the poem. The poem needs to be centered!!!
