Description

Historically speaking, poems started out as stories intended to be read aloud. Share poems the way they were MEANT to be read - with audio and video readings – while still achieving rigorous reading and creative writing!

This Poem of the Week Collection can be used in multiple ways, whether you want...

• more consistent poetry stretched throughout the year,

• to scaffold students up to more difficult poems,

• to compress these poems into a shorter unit in April, or

• to make poetry come alive alongside your other poetry instruction.

This collection of 45 poems presented in slideshow format incorporates ALL of the recommended CCSS exemplar poems for Grades 6-10! A wide variety of poets are represented: past and present, American and around the world, male and female, slam poet or written poems. (See the PREVIEW for a list of the poems included!)

Each Poem/Slide includes:

• 1-3 Links to the text, audio, and/or video (as available***)

• 3-5 Comprehension Questions (to assess understanding or Reading Literature standards)

• 1-3 Creative Writing Prompts (so students can write their own!)

This 55-slide, 3-page download includes:

• Slideshow: 45 slides of poems to choose from

• Teacher’s Guide: Includes a list of 12+ ways to use this collection in your classroom

• Student Handout: Applies to all poems to quickly check for understanding

• Both PDF and Editable files (via Google Slides!)

BONUS: This download now includes a SHORT version/activity if you're in a hurry! Read more about the "intro to poetry" assignment in my blog post to find out how you can still use this download if you're short on time.
