This is a brilliant “fresh off the press” group of poems written by current
favorite children’s authors to CELEBRATE authors of old!!!!! There is not
a poetry book like it on the market! Students will acquaint themselves with
a variety of famous authors from all walks of life, deriving the authors’
messages and discovering what was important about the poet and to the poet.
At the end of the book is a short biography about each poet that was
celebrated in this book. Students will choose one poet, read about that poet,
do further research about the poet, print out a poem written by that poet and
do a Poetry Analysis with the template I provided. Students will share their
Poetry Analysis with their peers.
