Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. Is this just for National Poetry Month? No! I love celebrating National Poetry Month, but poetry has a place in class all year long. You can use this resource anytime.
  2. What if I think want to teach cinquain poems myself using the slidedeck, but I'm not sure ? I'd suggest watching video where I teach cinquain poems and decide if you want to show the video and pause along the way, play it straight through, or use the slidedeck and do the talking yourself. You may decide to leave the video with a substitute!
  3. How long does the cinquain student-facing video instruction last? The video of me teaching about cinquain poems lasts just under thirteen minutes.


→This has a full 13-minute video and slidedeck with three short embedded videos, so the file is pretty large. Don't worry if it takes a hot minute to download!
