Task I Part I – Found poem for a character. This is a poem made only from lines or single words of the play (you “find” the lines) arranged in any format you choose. The goal is to assemble a work that sharply defines or illustrates the deeper nature of a particular character. The lines you choose need not necessarily be spoken by the character you’ve been assigned. The arrangement of words is up to you. That means you can switch words around and blend lines to fit your needs. The finished poem contains at least 15 and no more than 20 lines. Q: How long can a line be? A: lines should be a reasonable length, fitting between conventional margins. RUBRIC:
|9.0 -10 (to the greatest possible extent; lines paint an insightful, explicit picture of the character, consistent thought/strategy in choice and placement is obvious. Every line is vital)||
To what extent does the poem,using the prescribed amount of strategically selected and cleverly arranged lines from the play, deeply explore the true nature of a chosen character?
|8.0 – 8.9 (to a great extent; lines paint a clear, if not explicit, picture of the character, obvious thought/strategy in choice and placement is apparent, although not excellent)|
|7.0 – 7.9 (to an adequate extent; lines give sketchy picture of character, some though/strategy in choice and placement is apparent in a basic way. Some lines don’t seem to serve a purpose)|
|6.0 – 6.9 (to a minimum, possibly hints at character but lines seem random or incoherently arranged)|
|Less than 6.0 = minimal, incomplete, not submitted|
