Teaching poetry reading and analysis doesn't have to be intimidating or overwhelming. This poetry unit makes interpreting and analyzing poetry very accessible!
In this CCSS-aligned poetry unit students will closely read five poems from diverse authors. Each poem is accompanied by four analysis tasks. After each reading, students dive deeper into the interpretation and analysis of the poem. Then, based on the work that students have done while reading and responding to the poem, they will construct a detailed analysis of the poem. The best part is that by the time students write their poem analysis, they’re armed with a strong understanding of the poem. In addition, students learn all about poetry elements. You'll be so impressed with their responses that are not only accurate, but also filled with text examples and evidence. (Your students will be impressed and proud, too.)
This unit can easily be split into individual lessons - allowing you to teach poetry analysis five different times throughout the school year. Or, the unit can be taught in succession.
This detailed unit includes:
Students will read and analyze these poems:
* IMPORTANT - The poems are NOT included in this resource. However, multiple links for each poem are included. You will be able to easily click, print and/or type each poem. You'll find 5 template pages for each poem included in case you would like to coordinate the poems with the analysis tasks. Super easy!
