I started my grade 9's with a cut poetry assignment - choosing random words and phrases and arranging into them into 'poetry'.  They had no idea what it would eventually be paired up with.  Then they produced self-portrait lino prints with one print from the edition paired up with their cut poetry.  There's an interesting and amusing relationship that happens between the words and the image which I'm not sure would have happened had they known the poetry component to this project was going to be a companion to their own image.
