I Am/Not Poetry activity

I Am/Not Poetry activity
Students write a poem explaining who they are, a poem outlining who they are not, and create a visual that represents how society sees them versus who they really are. We had already read and studied the poems "If" and "A Woman is Not a Potted Plant," though similar poems dealing with identity will work also.
