Self-Reflection Questions for "Your World" Poem Draft:
1. What do I want to communicate? What is the main point ofr feeling I'm trying to express?
2. What is my favorite/most effective line?
3. What technique (refrain, personification, unconventional capitalization) did I use and where is it in the poem?
4. What could I develop more or expand? Where do I need help?
5. What might be overdone? Where could I simplify, clarify, or edit down my work?

Answer the questions above, then meet with a partner, exchange poem drafts, and respond:
