This is a poetry unit that takes me about 4 weeks (much of it is expected out of class, so other class work can take place in the classroom during this time). It requires the students to write rhyming poems with metaphors, hyperboles, similes, and other poetry forms such as diamantes, monometers, and found poems (26 total). It's challenging but students are very proud of their final projects. I am including a 28-page printable example of completed notebook that follows the instructions. This is original and very helpful. All handouts are included: poetry notebook instructions, detailed explanations of each poem with examples, 6 class activities (poems from the unit done in class), teacher checklist, grading rubric. All of this is EDITABLE and requires a tiny bit of editing (I kept the dates in the handout so you can see how long the project takes me.)
