Product Description
This is a 10 page compilation of poems that can be used to jump start any poetry unit. This packet was created to juxtapose both the classic and contemporary greats. At the end of the packet, there are also two activities that can be completed by the class. The first is an "I Am" poem structure to help students feel comfortable writing their own poetry; the second is a modeling activity, substituting their own sensory language within a skeletal version of Langston Hughes' "April Rain Song."

Poets included:

Jane Kenyon, Anne Sexton, William Shakespeare, Galway Kinnell, Robert Herrick, Sara Teasdale, Walt Whitman, Sharon Olds, Emily Dickinson, Stephen Dunn, Adrienne Rich, Taylor Mali, Joyce Sutphen, Robert Wrigley, William Carlos Williams, Theodore Roethke, Langston Hughes, Elizabeth Bishop, Pablo Neruda, Billy Collins, W.H. Auden, and Rita Dove.
