LO: To write a 'Tanka' poem

  1. Watch the video to find out about another Japanese form of poetry: Tanka.

Tanka Poems

2. 

  • The first 3 lines of the Tanka are the same as a Haiku  (5,7,5 syllables) but there are then two more lines of 7 syllables.
  • These lines sometimes show a change or shift in tone or atmosphere and are more emotional and personal. This is called the 'Turn' or turning point. In a Tanka it's called a 'Pivotal Image'. As in... the image that the poem puts in your head, pivots. Pivot means to turn. 

3.

  • Read the first page of the document 'Tanka Writing Frame'.
  • Read again the example of the Tanka Poem about the chicken. 
  • This is a simple example of a Tanka, which does not show a change or shift in tone or atmosphere. They are easier to write but less traditional.
  • 4.

  • Use the second page of the Tanka Writing Frame document, to help you collect ideas to write a Tanka.
  • You should use the theme of our 'Island' topic in some way. You could even adapt one of your Haikus from yesterday to get you started.
  • Some ideas are: the ocean, a storm, the beach, creatures, sounds, weather, the sun, rainforests, deforestation, animal extinction, the taste of delicious fruit...

 

5.

  • Complete the Tanka assessment slip.
  • Go back and improve your poem to ensure it is the best that it can be.
  • Did you manage a 'turn' or 'pivotal image' or did you write the simpler version?
  • Write your Tanka up neatly for inclusion in a class book. IA4 size)
