Making an Epigraph from Everyday Lingo

By November 14, 2016Daily Create

For today’s Daily Create I transcribed a snippet of dialog overheard today and used that cue as the opening thought of a poem, like an epigraph. You can do this activity with students when teaching on poetry and how epigraphs are used in literature. Kids have a great time coming up with these and it’s especially fun when they use video game memes or random sentences blurted out during game-play like, “I can build a castle with all your salt!”
