Teaching poetry involves sharing examples with students, but pulling them out of your hat during class is challenging. Sometimes you just need a back-up example to clarify terms for the students. This presentation outlines the basic terms and major types of poetry and provides examples of each. Some of the terms identified in the PowerPoint are stanzas, refrain, rhythm, meter, scansion, blank verse, free verse, rhyme scheme, ballad, concrete poetry, dramatic poetry, elegy, epic poetry, haiku, limerick, lyric poetry, sonnets, narrative poetry, and odes.
