Big Question Overview and Resources


What makes you different from the person sitting next to you? Is it the way you talk? What you believe in? No one in the world is exactly like you. Reading about other people and what makes them special can help you figure out what is special about you.

Poetry is a special type of literature that is written in verse-lines instead of running text. Some poems tell stories and others explore feelings. Some have steady beat and rhyme patterns, and others are written in free verse. Reading and writing poetry is a great way to understand what makes you you.
