What's Due (next class period)
It's your turn. In the interest of actually learning these elements of flow, your job is to write your own "Betty Botter"-type poem, using alliteration, assonance, and consonance (check the Poetry Basics: Flow Edition handout above for definitions and examples.)
It needs to be at least eight (8) lines long, and you need to highlight/underline an example of each element–alliteration, assonance, and consonance (just highlight/underline one example of each, not every time they show up in your poem.) Make sure I understand what you're highlighting by labeling each highlight or by making a key.
