This no-prep file contains all the elements needed for a poetry unit in which students create their own poetry notebook:
- Very detailed teacher instructions and suggestions,
- Terminology Glossary, Worksheet, and Quiz
- Fifteen poetry worksheets, each with a well-known poem, practice using terminology, and questions about meaning and the poet's message.
- Activities including students writing their own ode, one for imagery, a poetic collection by student's choice of topic, writing an original twelve-line poem (a matrix supplied for those who need it), and more.
This is something I have used multiple times; I give suggestions for altering the assignments and tailoring them to your own classroom, and my experiences with some of the lessons.
There are answer keys for half the worksheets.
Please see Preview for some sample pages.
