Students write creative “to do lists” for themselves
If you want students to...:
- Connect to peers
- Explore identity and purpose through narrative
Read “To Do List” by Simon Armitage. The link is here: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/01/05/list-2
Ask students what they notice about the poem. Do any list items resonate with them?
Take 10-15 minutes to have students write their own creative “To Do” lists, and then share in partners or with the full group.
