This is an engaging and interactive poetry bundle to use with any middle school or high school classroom. Every single lesson involves the students working in small and/or large group discussions and will keep them interested. Heck, they might even consider poetry fun!
This poetry bundle touches on numerous poetic devices, biography poetry, sonnets, nonsense poetry, in-depth analysis and annotation of several poems, and group work.
I have included a day-by-day guide that explicitly explains how to conduct each lesson. ALL documents are editable!
