We live in a world of color. This exploration, provided by PoetryLife, explores the cultural/historic/symbolic associations of color and how it impacts our decisions, feelings and moods.  As students choose their favorite color, they work through the writing process including brainstorming, listing, categorizing, drafting and revising as well as choosing color synonyms to build their poems. After revising their poems, they read their poems aloud to the class.

Color is an inexhaustible source from which to draw and help students develop a personal voice and personal language that becomes a poem.
