Six Men Reader’s Response (War)

This week, Division 2 had the powerful book Six Men by David McKee read to them. Students were asked to write down powerful words from the story, or words that caused a picture to appear in their minds. Students then chose 7 words from their lists and arranged them into a Word-List Poem. A Word-List Poem is simply a collection of words arranged in an order that makes sense and is powerful. The results were impressive! Here are a few of the poems:
