Product Description
Use this beautifully designed 33-slide Prezi lecture and accompanying handouts to pull even your most reluctant students into a study of poetry. Begin by piquing your students’ interest in poetry by briefly (and humorously) comparing the art form to song lyrics. Then, present a concrete, 9-step process to help any student decode any poem.

These lesson materials include a guided note handout (with answer key) that will help focus students’ listening and serve as a reference sheet as they move forward into analyzing poetry. After the lecture, use the “Know the Lingo” worksheet (with answer key) to build on prior knowledge and introduce new elements. The poetry terms worksheet can be used as a solo assignment or a small team matching game. Poetry terms on the worksheet include alliteration, allusion, assonance, ballad, consonance, diction, enjambment, free verse, metaphor, meter, onomatopoeia, rhythm, simile, stanza, symbol, theme, tone, and verse.

A dazzling alternative to Powerpoint, Prezi allows presenters to “zoom” to their next slide and the modern design captivates a teen audience. My students love the Prezi style and beg me all the time to make more of them. You can check out Prezi for free at www.prezi.com. I also have a free Prezi in my teacher store, if you want to take a look. You don’t need any special equipment or software to use Prezi. If your computer can view a YouTube video, then you can enjoy a Prezi.

Prezis run on both SMARTBoards and regular classroom computers with projectors.

Click the “Preview” button at the top of the page to take a closer look. I hope you enjoy this fresh approach to lecturing that’s sure to keep your students’ attention.

Due to the “zoom” animations, this zip file is large. The download will take a few minutes, so please be patient. When you get the folder, open it and launch the “Prezi.” Just ignore the other items; they’re needed to run the show. Your computer will ask if you want to “open” the web-created file. No worries; there’s no virus, so just open and enjoy. For full-screen viewing, be sure to click on the small icon in the lower right-hand corner (just like on YouTube).

This item is included in my full, 4-week poetry unit. Click HERE to check out my money-saving poetry lesson bundle. If you purchase the bundle, there's no need to buy this item separately.

Finally, this item is also included in my English 9-10 full-year curriculum. If you already own the full-year download, please do not purchase this item here individually. If you’d like to receive this item plus everything else needed to teach 180 days of English 9 or English 10 at a deeply discounted price, click here to learn more about the full-year curriculum download.

Thanks for stopping by!
