The Assignment: Poetry Interview

Interview someone you know about their relationship with poetry: a parent, an older relative, a teacher (no English teachers).

The first question: What's your favorite poem?

Follow up questions: Do you know any poems by heart? How often do you read poetry? What poems do you remember from school or growing up?

Record their responses via notes or if they're not shy... video them with your phone (let them know they will be posted to this blog).

Take note of their attitude toward poetry. What did you find interesting? What did you learn about this person?

Extra credit: Record them reading their favorite poem.

(Youtube immortality and posterity can be a powerful motivator.)
