This 60-page product is pretty much a unit ready to teach tomorrow. There are total of 7 poems to study in the unit, focusing in on reading strategies, annotation, similes and metaphors, author's writing strategies, and developing a central idea/message about a poem. There is a student packet complete with unit directions and rubric, a written response assessment with outline, and a mostly complete teacher's note packet. A complete unit test has been included to assess 2 poems from the unit, and 3 new "fresh reads." Plenty of multiple choice in the unit test to quickly assess student work. While some poems in the teacher packet are lacking notes, I pretty sure you will be more than pleased with everything in this product. Please be aware that there are no lesson plans or directions on how to teach poetry, but it should be easy for you to pick up from what is here and make an awesome poetry unit of it. Thank you for your interest!
