Student Writer Instructions:
Today, you'll be writing a ballad (or a series of ballads) about a family member that you love.
A ballad, if you remember, is a four-line poem whose second and fourth line rhyme. A ballad also has a distinct rhythm to it.
Your teacher should show you a few ballads before you begin writing. Say them out loud before planning your own. Listen to the rhythm of the four lines.
