Research one of the following poets and write a one-paragraph biography. Despite what I implied in the title of this chapter, not all famous poets are poor, so don't make any assumptions until you do your research.
Continue revising until your paragraph meets all of the grading criteria.
Copy at least 3 lines of the poem you wrote about into your notebook, along with information about the source (author, book title, etc.).
Make sure that you like the lines you copy. Older students should copy more than three lines! Add 2 lines for each year of age past 10.

Read the biography report to your family members during your class meeting.
