The Poetry Essay assignment sheet is available on Blackboard, and resources, expectations and library links are also available in our course shell. However, here is a list of some useful resources all in one place.
Writing Prompt and downloadable Assignment Sheet: Using one or two poems from the textbook or from the PoetryFoundation.org archive, explain how the themes, content, characters, or language of the poem represent a social issue. Social issues can be as small as an individual’s self-esteem or as large as racial/gender/identity inequality. Support your observations with citation from the poem(s), one scholarly library database article, and one reputable Internet article.

Library & Reputable Internet Sources Links
Remember that you’ll need to use one library database article and one reputable Internet article for your assignment. You’ll find a list of reputable Internet sources in the the “Resources” link on Blackboard and here’s a link to help you choose credible sources. Here are the most commonly used library database resources:
- Academic Search Complete
- ProQuest Central
- Issues & Controversies
- Gale Literature Criticism Online
- Gale Virtual Reference Library
Remember that you’ll need to log into the library site if you’re not using a campus computer. When you reach the log in screen, you’ll enter 24611 + your purple student number + 01, and then enter your last name.
