This is a unit that can stand alone as a "mini-unit" or supplement your current poetry unit. Each poem includes an in-depth analysis of the poem that requires students to evaluate the speaker’s message, use of literary devices, rhyme scheme, and summarize the poem. Lessons combine the elements of close reading with poetry, literary analysis, and free verse writing.Included:
• Teacher Resource Guide aligned to CCSS
• 13 poems with printable worksheets and answer keys.
• Sample lesson plans
• Writing Enrichment activities
• Rigorous mini-lessons to teach simile, metaphor, personification, hyperbole with accompanying worksheets.
