This is an eclectic compilation of my best poetry materials for use during National Poetry Month or any other time of year.
It is not a unit plan, but offers lots of choices for both reading and writing poetry.
Some of the poems involved are by Eve Merriam, Langston Hughes, Robert Pinsky and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, just to name a few. Some come with questions, while others are intended as models of different types of poetry.
This product provides some information about diamante, haiku, sonnets, free verse poetry, and others. It also has poetry quizzes and a test from different years, which reinforce student knowledge of key literary terms and types of poetry.
Finally, I've included an assignment for a poetry portfolio and a description of a poetry inquiry project.
Thanks for looking. Best of luck in your poetic endeavors:)
