HW12G: PBA Presentation

Everything you need to know about your PBA! During the actual 20 minute presentation, each student will share High School poem. After each reading, students will be expected to briefly discuss shared poems. While I am interested in hearing your holistic thoughts on the piece, I also expect to hear nuanced observations about the poem (i.e. language, style, rhythm, figures, etc).  You must comment on at least two of the shared poems.

The following should be stapled together and in this order:

  • Villanelle
  • Confessional
  • Artifact
  • Beat
  • Dream Sonnet
  • Transcendental/Romantic
  • Mimic
  • Double Consciousness
  • Essence
  • High School

Immediately following the original ten poems above you should include the following from your contribution to your group project:

  • Poet Biography
  • Poem (This should be the poem that you explicated)
  • Explication
  • Original Poem


  • Put the heading ONLY on the first page (i.e. Villanelle). Remember, the heading should be your name, Poetry Seminar, date of presentation, and type of poem (i.e. Beat Poem). The heading should be single spaced.
  • Starting with the second page, place page numbers in the bottom right corner of the page.
  • Times New Roman or Arial, font size 12.
  • Double Space everything except for the heading on the first page.
