"Poetry Talk" Activity for Middle and High School Students
This product features an engaging "Poetry Talk" activity that will have your students thinking, writing, speaking, and moving on the first day of your poetry unit. In this activity, they must choose between 6 different quotes about poetry from famous authors like T. S. Eliot and Carl Sandburg and articulate why the quote aligns with their perspective on poetry. This is a great way for students to think independently about poetry, share their ideas with others, and to give you a sense of where your students stand on the subject of poetry!
- Comprehensive Lesson Plan
- "Poetry Talk" Sheet for students to fill out
- 6 Corresponding "Poetry Quote" signs to hang up around your room
