This POETRY BUNDLE Vol. 1 (with Test Prep) contains 5 EASY-TO-TEACH Lessons with Common Core Style QUESTIONS and ANSWERS (for 5 poems including "I Hear America Singing," "One Song, America," "Fire and Ice," "Paul Revere's Ride," and "Because I Could Not Stop For Death") based on the Common Core Reading standards, which would be great for WHOLE GROUP lessons, SMALL GROUP instruction, PULL-OUTS, PUSH-INS, or SUBSTITUTE plans. All texts/images are either original works or PUBLIC DOMAIN. The texts are pretty accessible, so the reading comprehension and analysis lessons could be used for 6th-12th graders with or without teacher guidance, depending on the amount of differentiation needed for each student. Each lesson takes about 90 minutes for a total of about 2-3 weeks worth of lessons, depending on the goals for each lesson. Give yourself a breath of fresh air with this NO PREP curriculum that integrates test prep within literature. ***All of the lessons can also be found in my 18 Lesson Poetry Mega Bundle.
