I use this slide show to guide my lessons. Typically students write their practice poetry in their Writing notebooks or journals. When they have collected several orignial poems, we make individual slide shows in Google Sides. This resource would help teachers with instruction of the elements of poetry as well as instruction on different types of poems.
Included is information on how to write several different styles of poems, with examples and links for each type of poem. This slide show is a good tool to use to discuss and inspire students. It is recommended that example poetry be read and discussed with students.
