Product Description

Looking for a fun way to teach poetic forms? This 2-day lesson provides an engaging alternative to the PPT-style lesson. Students will learn about 8 different forms of poetry in a student-directed group activity. Poetic forms include:

  • Petrarchan Sonnet
  • English Sonnet
  • Ballad
  • Free verse
  • Blank verse
  • Haiku
  • Limerick
  • Blackout

In this lesson students can "discover" the structure behind each form of poetry, instead of simply memorizing the structure from a PPT. Students will not only learn the rules, but help each other to understand them by analyzing examples.

This lesson can be used as an introduction to, or review of, poetic forms for advanced middle or high school students. Lessons are ready-to-teach with detailed instructions for the minds-on, class activities, and consolidation. It includes:

  • Detailed Lesson Plans
  • Activity chart handout
  • Lesson Notes handout
  • Poem Exemplars
  • Review PPT
  • Blackout Poetry activity instructions
