Description:

Children and teens who enjoy writing poetry but are looking for new and interesting topics to write about needn't look any further than the reading they already do for pleasure.   While young poets are enjoying the experience of reading a book or magazine of their choice, offer them this opportunity to focus on a favorite passage. They choose a section that they find richly descriptive or emotionally powerful and transform it into what's known as a '' found poem.'',   Writers can then extend the activity by using the structure of their found poem to create another text called a parallel poem.
