When presented with poetry, students usually groan and lose interest. Today's authors have taken notice of these responses and have created a new format for poems to be read...the "poetry novel". Poets use poems to tell a full story that students become invested in much like a fiction story. Now students can read poetry without complaining about the difficulty of the read! Students can activate their prediction making skills as well as their inferencing skills all while reading an engaging story.
This unit contains questions, activities, and personal narrative prompts to engage students in writing.
