This powerpoint lesson is based on Common Core standards for poetry. I use this presentation to teach and review haiku, cinquain, rhyme scheme, limerick, and free verse. The powerpoint contains descriptions, examples, helpful tips, history, and more!
At the end, there is a project rubric for independent study as well as a bonus slide on theme!
I use this each year and it usually takes about a week to teach and review the forms of poetry and a week for the independent study projects. Two weeks of lessons!!!
Before I teach poetry, I teach and review figurative language for a few days (possibly a week). Find my powerpoint on figurative language in my store on http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Jessica-Giuliani.
