NEWSPAPER BLACKOUT POEMS by Austin Kleon. In some ways, I’m probably the worst person to teach blackout poetry.
I’ve done it for so long, I don’t even really think about it any more. Making art and teaching art are two different skill sets, and a quick Google search for “blackout poetry lesson plans” shows that there’s a small army of English teachers already doing it better than me, anyways. That’s not to say I don’t like teaching, it’s just that I’m never sure I’m any good at it. I’ve done some workshops with a lot of instruction and timed activities, but those always seem just a little bit off.
