Today, your job is to start gathering information about the "problem" you are solving, or the need you are helping satisfy. You might gather:
As you begin learning about the problem your nonprofit addresses, look for things like:
What do you want your nonprofit to be? Decide who you will serve and how you will serve them. We'll share on Monday!
Over the next few weeks, each student in our class will be working independently to answer the question, "How can I create a nonprofit organization to serve people in need?"
To begin our projects, we'll first explore some basic questions about nonprofits.
What is a nonprofit organization?
What needs do these nonprofits serve?
What are some ways nonprofits get money?
A final essay should:
Where do you describe what is seen, heard, smelled, tasted, or felt?
What verbs do you use? Go back and change all your action verbs to something more descriptive.
Where do you use these tools? Why did you pick the metaphor you did?
Do you have reasons for ALL of your line breaks and stanzas?
What are you emphasizing by breaking your lines where you do?
Does your poem rhyme? Does it rhyme all the way through the whole poem?
If you don’t rhyme in some places, but do in others, why? You should have a reason.
Do you say things that don’t work well just because they rhyme? Change it!
What is the message your poem delivers? Is it just description, or do you tie it to an important idea?
You need a title. Do you have one?
Your title is one more opportunity to create meaning in your poem. Don’t just put down the first thing that comes to mind.
Did you do anything else in your poem on purpose? Tell about it!
