This week, we will conclude our book study of The Color Purple. In addition, you will participate in the Adopt-a-Poet project. You and your classmates, will explore and research the poetry, lives, literary movements, and beliefs of one of the
poets listed below (or another poet approved by me). Find poems online, in the library, and/or in our anthology; memorize a few lines; explore their philosophies. In other
words, adopt your poets and become the class expert on them. You will get an opportunity to work on this throughout the week.
