CONTENTS {FOR EACH POEM}

Notes On The Poem:
This page is designed to give some context to the poem and contains information about the poet, the time of writing, structural elements etc. This page could be given to students, although it could also just be used as background information for the teacher.

Lesson Ideas:
Although there is no step-by-step lesson plan contained, this teacher’s page gives ideas for pre-reading, reading and post-reading activities and suggestions for how to use the worksheets included.

Plain Version Of The Poem:
For each poem, there is a simple version of the poem without annotation, clipart or distractions. This is included so that you can use it to project on the board, on an overhead page or give to students for their own initial annotation.
 
Annotated Guided Reading Worksheet:
Each poem comes with a page containing the poem with guided reading questions. These questions are intended to draw out comprehension of the poem and guide students’ analysis. These questions could be completed orally in pairs or groups, or could be set as a written task.
ANSWER KEYS INCLUDED
 
Various Other Worksheets:
For each poem there are other worksheets included which link with the specific poems and necessitate closer examination and study.

Please Note:If you don't get around to using this in the first week of school, you can still use them later in the year as they work well anytime in the year - whenever your students need a little inspiration!
