Product Description
I used this 19th century American poetry unit for a whole trimester worth of material, which I taught to my middle school students (though it’d be appropriate for high school students as well).

The goal of this unit was to:
A) Expose students to a range of 19th century American poetry
B) To encourage students to learn how to annotate a poem
C) To appreciate the poetry of the period through memorization/recital

It contains:
1) 2-part power point containing images and background information on the 11 poets, along with slides containing 32 of their poems for projecting to the class. (198 slides)
2) Extra instructional notes (14 pages)
3) 2 cartoons, 1 video clip, 3 music clips
4) 1 extra poem (9 pages)
5) Extra activities (5 pages plus 1 page answer key)
6) 32 Poems on Handouts (66 pages)
7) Teacher’s Annotated Poem Handouts (66 pages)
359 total pages/slides

Poets included:
William Cullen Bryant, Sidney Lanier, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, John Greenleaf Whittier, James Russell Lowell, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Edgar Allan Poe, Walt Whitman, and Emily Dickinson
