This is my largest poetry bundle and I will continue to add new poetry-related products as I create them. Currently, you'll find the following lessons, games, and assessments here:
1. Poetic Devices Summative Assessment. Poetry and literary devices assessment for grade 8 through high school - this is a resource you'll use again and again! ELA CCSS & ACT QC aligned - 20 questions based on four separate poems, this assessment is perfect for an end-of-unit test on poetry. This test is in multiple choice format. The four poems provide a state-test-like format wherein your students apply their knowledge of the standards and concepts they have learned to four pieces they have not studied.
2. Fun and Collaborative Poetry Lessons and Games. Over 100 pages of engaging resources for even the most reluctant reader of poetry. Includes all editable student handouts:

3. Close Reading of Emily Dickinson's "Because I Could Not Stop for Death." This product contains: A PowerPoint close-reading think aloud which includes poem, annotations, and questions, my original hand drawing of Emily, and 16 quotes by Emily Dickinson to use as task cards or mini posters. There is a blank template page to add quotes of your choice.
The PowerPoint think aloud analyzes the literary devices used (e.g., personification, imagery, symbolism, etc.) along with teacher annotations which appear as custom animations (arrows pointing, timely reveal of important information). The presentation is versatile inasmuch as students can view independently after their own analysis, it can be used for test review, or the teacher can lead post-reading discussion while running it. Higher-level questions, text-to-text comparison. Printable copy of poem at end of the presentation. Text-to-text connections with Dylan Thomas' "Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night." Includes an original sketch of Emily Dickinson.
4. An analysis of "maggie and milly and molly and may" by E.E. Cummings. Your students will think deeply about literary devices and text-to-self as they study the great poet, E. E. Cummings. Lesson includes 20 analysis questions, discussion cards, add a couplet, and imagery sketch prompt. A copy of the poem with room for annotation and suggestions to guide annotating, is provided as well. Included are two copies of the 20-question assessment: a designer version for display and a printer-friendly version if you'd prefer handouts. This lesson will provoke students to analyze and annotate the poem, and apply their knowledge of literary vocabulary, and create text-to-self connections. (CCAS RL 1, 4.)
