This Prezi is a great resource to use when teaching poetry to your students! It is designed to be used during a poetry unit or a study of poetry. It can be used as an introduction, in the middle of your instruction, or as a wrap up to a unit. It can also be used in one lesson or over more than one day.
This Prezi takes students step-by-step through their feelings about poetry, what poetry is, and what they need to focus on when reading poetry. Included in this Prezi are two full-length poems: “Change” by Charlotte Zolotow and “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost. The students will discuss these poems, use guiding reflection questions to look at their deeper meaning, and rate how much they enjoyed them. Also included are embedded videos that will help engage your students in this lesson.
The Prezi is very easy to operate & the presentation of the lesson guides itself. Have fun!
