I'm really proud of this resource! I've compiled into a printable 32-page A4 booklet a ten-day poetry unit that gives students an opportunity every day to learn about famous poets, study important poetry terms, analyze poems, and write their own poems!
The 18 poets in the booklet include Renaissance Era figures such as Shakespeare, Milton, and Donne; Romantic era figures such as Blake, Byron, and Keats; and Victorian Era poems such as Tennyson and Hopkins. The 42 different terms include different poetic forms and eras, different types of figurative language, diction, tone, imagery, and paradox. And each day, students are given the chance to use a famous poet as a model to inspire the writing of an original poem to be compiled into a final poetry portfolio.
Lesson plans are easy to adapt, and I've also made available as a separate resource a final test that I use at the end of the unit.
