I absolutely love this poetry teaching sequence - it has all the ingredients I value in a writing cycle: creativity, independence, imagery and it's huge on editing. The whole sequence can be done in around three to four lessons and more able pupils (who write fast) can just do another poem for a different color.
The unit is based on the model text 'Green' (see images). The teacher analyses the poem and its features and takes the class through the writing and editing process step-by-step.
