Teacher’s Feedback

  1. “My students really enjoyed this poetry unit - especially the Spoken Word.  It was easy to use and the modifications for learners was helpful.  It was so nice to have students engaged in a poetry unit!”
  2. “I spent a happy couple of hours reading through the lesson plans, saving video links, and organizing files to use with my grade 7 virtual class. ELA is NOT my comfort zone, so the clear definitions, answer keys, and especially specific poem examples are a huge relief. I have used other products from 2 peas, and I like the consistency of language on the rubrics, and the detail in digital files that are ready to use with google classroom. The short videos (recommended or linked) from a wide range of channels give a concise overview,    I’m glad that I don’t have to find them all myself (or make them!) Thanks so much for another great resource.”
  3.  “My students loved this unit so much. My students were able to create poems that really represented them. “
