Students will master the standards with poetry mini-units for grades 6-10. This growing bundle currently includes full mini-unit lesson plans, worksheets, graphic organizers, poetry stations, hands on activities, rubrics, and answer keys! With this bundle, you will receive over 90 pages of materials including:
- Master Standard RL2 with Robert Frost's "The Road Not Taken." Students analyze the development of theme in the poem over the course of this 5 day mini-unit that ends with students writing their own Frost style poem.
- Master Standard RL 3 with Edgar Allan Poe's "Annabel Lee." Students analyze how elements of the poem interact and add meaning to the poem in this 5 day mini-unit that ends with students writing their own Poe style poem.
- Master Standard RL 4 with Lewis Carroll's "Jabberwocky." This three day activity is a favorite of my students and helps them to practice using context clues to figure out the meaning of unknown words. We completed this 3 day mini-unit around state testing and students had clearly mastered using context clues!
- Master Standard RL 5 with Shakespeare's Sonnet XVIII. This is the most famous and accessible of Shakespeare's sonnets and a great way to master the skill of analyzing the way form and structure of a poem contributes to its meaning. This 5 day mini-unit helps students to analyze a complex poem using the TP-CASTT method followed by two days of poetry stations (which can easily be adapted to any poetry study!).
This is a growing bundle, so there's more to come! These mini-units are great for observations, review, preparing for a new study, or polishing up a specific skill. Each mini-unit directly targets a single standard, making them especially effective! Plans and answer keys are so detailed, they also make great meaningful sub plans without the guilt of missing a day with your students!
Enjoy over 18 days of standards-based, engaging learning with your secondary ELA students!
