All of these ideas are super fun and I think students would be really excited to build a classroom community this way! Inclusivity is super important to remember in schools, because happy kids learn better!:)
What if you're at a school with a high population of ELLs, and you have several students at very different places in their language learning? How could you go about fairly grading them? Create 10 different rubrics?
What I really like about techniques that help English Language Learners is that they tend to be beneficial to all students anyway. Using colors or images are just a couple of awesome ways to get students comfortable with poetry. I like that students are encouraged to write in their first language if it's easier for them. Perhaps it could be explained to all students that whatever their "language" (or dialect, or subculture) is, they should begin writing in a way that's natural for them.
I am super impressed with how many sources you incorporated into this! All of the details helped show how many ways you could practically apply the information and why it is important and beneficial to directly address power structures in the classroom.
