Product Description

You know that when March comes around everybody is talking about their brackets. People love a competition. So why not pit America's best poets against Britain's best poets in a bracket style competition. This competition features some of the most recognized names in poetry from Shakespeare and Blake to Poe and Frost.

In this unit, students read and analyze poetry. They develop criteria for choosing the best poem and they write a poetry analysis essay. This unit is aligned to the new AP Literature Enduring Understandings and Skills.
