This poetry unit helps teach: structure and sound devices, theme, types of poetry, figurative language, summary, and point of view.
This file contains a graphic organizer where students can record annotations about a poem.
Symbols on the graphic organizer coorespond with symbols on the flashcards (also included in the file) that can help students if they get stuck.
A teacher answer key for the flashcards is included, along with examples for each flashcard. (Definitions came from the Glencoe Literature textbook glossary, so they should be aligned to the standards.) This resource could be displayed as a poster in the classroom.
I've included several songs that can be analyzed before moving into more difficult poems, like what might be found in a literature textbook.
An independent poem analysis project with a grading rubric is included.
A poster of "Tips for Analyzing Poetry" is included.
A poster project and rubric is also included.
