Students will learn about poetry by exposure to terms, different types of figurative language, and different styles of poetry (Narrative, Lyrical, Free Verse, Acrostic, Cinquain, Riddle, Couplet, and Diamante). This unit includes poetry term posters for a better understanding of poetry. Student's can read the poem and find the examples of figurative language.
