This is a complete poetry unit (10-15 days) that includes well known poems, study questions, a test and a summative assignment with marking rubrics (writing a poem, analyzing a poem, reciting a poem).
I use it in grade 11, but it could be used in 10-12. You do not need to use poetry units A or B first (but you can). The units build on each other, but they also stand alone. Includes the poems "At a Window" by Carl Sandberg, "Dream Deferred" by Langston Hughes, "Dulce et Decorm Est" by Wilfred Owen, "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud' by William Wordsworth, "The World Is too Much with Us" by William Wordsworth, "TH TOMATO CONSPIRACY AINT WORTH A WHOL POME" by Bill Bisset, "Spring is like a perhaps hand" by ee cummings, and "Mirror" by Sylvia Plath.
The unit is organized by what I call the six characteristics of poetry: significance, comparative language, imagery, language use, line breaks, and originality. Each poem study focuses on one of these characteristics and includes analysis of characteristics previously addressed.
