Blackout Poems in the Classroom

I’ve had some success inviting the English Language Learners in writing club to write Austin Kleon’s blackout poems.

Some tips from Austin Kleon as well as my experience:

  • Scan for attention-grabbing words.
  • Choose one.
  • Build phrases around that word.
  • You can use a marker or you can scan the document and use paint or photoshop.

Good luck.
