Integrating poetry with reading and history is an integral way to push your students to higher levels of thinking. Use this to help your students understand deeper levels of characterization in a novel, literature story, history unit about famous people, or even in science and math when discussing people who contributed much to their fields of study.
Or, use this in writing to have students express ideas about themselves, family members and/or friends. Great for Back to School, the start of a new quarter, a student of the day/week activity, or any other time you wish to focus on your amazing students.
