This is a culminating group activity at the end of a unit of poetry. This activity has turned out to be the most engaging activity I have ever created. I created it for 10th grade English, then later modified it for 8th and 9th grade English. In groups of 3-4, students are given poems they have not seen before, but are the same structure as poetry studied during the unit they just completed. Together they must read and agree on the category in which to place each poem. This unit includes a Power Point to review various types of poetry, 24 poems to use in this activity, a worksheet/score sheet to simplify grading and instruction for implementation. There is also a list of the poems that are included and the category each fits into.
