PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Throughout this poetry unit, students are afforded the opportunity to explore various poetic devices, write original poems & respond to poetry. Both teacher-directed and student-centered activities are included within the 19 lessons plans, as well as a checklist for student writing and a rubric for assessment. Poems & tasks increase in complexity as the unit progresses and begin to explore the Harlem Renaissance. This would be a great addition to a Social Studies piece on that period of time, an introduction to a unit that explores a novel from the Harlem Renaissance and/or alongside a unit of the same.

NOTE: This poetry unit was designed for 8th grade level students; however, teachers across other middle school and high school grades could use the lesson plans & activities here by incorporating more appropriate, grade-specific poems in place of the ones here. Poems that accompany this unit are a free listing in my TPT store labeled Poetry Unit Resources.
