Description

Why do we often submit our students to long, dull, (dare I say, torturous) poetry units that they hate? Why not make poetry as fun and exciting as it has the potential to be?

This unit does just that! Inside this .pdf file you will find 11 elements of poetry lesson plans and activities plus a pre and post test. Each lesson comes with everything you need (from links to Google Slides Presentations to note sheets to assignments to answer keys and rubrics) to make your class's poetry study appealing to middle school students! These products can be used both in the classroom and digitally via Easel or Google Slides!

Through humorous examples and creative projects, students are engaged as they learn numerous poetic elements and devices. I've also included enough of the "classical" poetry teaching style to expose your students to the full spectrum of poetry.
