What is a poetry single study? Poetry can be difficult, and many students are reluctant to even try it. However, with my poetry singles students are given the opportunity for success because the material is presented in a guided, step-by-step process that builds confidence from beginning to the end. It's a quick, yet powerful resource to add to your tools for teaching poetry toolbox.
Student Experience: Students will enjoy reading a song as poetry. They will annotate and then break down the text for theme and theme development. When finished with the poetry study, students will complete a creative football-themed "craftivity."
