PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Writing Poetry Like Famous Poets: Poetry Made Easy for Struggling (or Any) Students

So many students struggle when it comes to writing poetry. This 98-slide presentation (which includes 13 pages of printable handouts) will have them writing with ease! Not only does it introduce several well-known poets and their famous poems, it shows students that writing does not have to be difficult and can actually be fun.

Students will review the bios of famous poets, then study one (or more) of their poems, then try to mimic the same style and/or format. I include poem "maps" or formulas so all students have to do is fill in the blanks. Your students will be engaged, and by the time they are through, they'll have written over 10 original poems.

This is appropriate for grades 7-12, and perhaps adaptable for younger students, as well. The poetry styles are not difficult and are presented clearly with plenty of examples.

This is the Microsoft Powerpoint & Microsoft Word version. It is also available in iWork Keynote & Pages (Mac/Apple). Both bundles include the PDF files, as well.

Includes internet activities, as well.

This is NOT included in my Poetry Resources bundle (it is much too large to fit).
