So, what we have created for you is a poetry writing unit for students who hate to write poetry. We came up with six out of the ordinary types of poem writing that are not so much about style, but about combining words and emotions into art. We know, we’re excited about them, too!

Tell Me More:

We have created a presentation (keynote, Powerpoint, and PDF formats) that contains the basic elements of any good lesson: an anticipatory set, direct instruction, guided practice, and reflection. We skipped the assessment part of the lesson because poetry should be read, shared, and discussed not subjectively graded. This may be one reason why so many students hate writing poetry since you need to feel safe to write and share your true feelings, not vulnerable to the grading and judgment of others.

Within this lesson are mini lessons that teach students how to use poetic devices and language to improve their poetry. We also don’t make our students write or emulate certain types of poems. We give them the freedom to write whatever is in their hearts.

What You Will Get:

3 Presentations - Keynote (editable), PowerPoint (editable), and PDF

6 different types of poetry

3 Poetry writing mini lessons

Student examples

Over 65 pictures for students to use to help make some of their poetry so they can focus on writing the poem, not searching for images

We hope that your students like this original poetry unit as much as ours do. Happy teaching!
