UCLA Language Materials Project
Each student will write a diamond poem explaining or describing the topic of a story or theme and the emotions this topic evokes.
Each diamond poem will have one theme at the top of the diamond and its opposite theme at the bottom.
Each diamond poem will be accompanied by two illustrations -- one for each of the two themes.
Each element of the poem is written on a separate line and centered. The elements are:
Title of the poem
Two adjectives related to the theme at the top
Two nouns that describe the theme at the top
Two nouns that describe the opposite theme
Three gerunds related to the theme at the bottom
Two adjectives related to the theme at the bottom
