PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The attached is an activity I use when I introduce a poetry unit. What happens is the class is broken up into four groups, and then within those groups they work themselves through a series of prompts which help them to formulate their own definitions of what poetry is. Takes between 45 minutes to an hour, depending on your students.

I've used this mainly with 9th and 10th grade classes, but it could work with just about any level. Basically it forces them to think about what a poem is and what it isn't, and then as a group put their ideas into words.

Includes a set of sample answers given by one of my classes.
