PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This unit is complete with three weeks of lesson plans for a poetry study. In this unit, students will be reading, studying, and interpreting poetry.

In week one, students begin by looking at the techniques authors use to write great poems: Emotion, Imagery, and Rhythm. In week two, students work with close reading strategies so that they can interpret the poems that they are reading. Finally, in week three, students study various poetry forms and then work on determining theme in poems.

Lesson plans are written in mini-lesson form, each with four parts: Link, Teaching Point, Active Involvement, and Connection. Included with the lesson plans are aligned standards (this is aligned to fifth but can be modified for 4th - 8th), key vocabulary, a list of mentor texts, teacher notes page that explains Responsible vs. Irresponsible Interpretations, and graphic organizers for 5 senses, simile and metaphor, steps for close reading poetry, and the "Peel the Onion" organizer for students to think through their poems.
