PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

INTERACTIVE POETRY UNIT

This interactive CC aligned poetry unit is designed to turn middle school students on to poetry. It is fun, creative, challenging, and can be taught as a student-directed unit if the teacher so chooses. It can be taught as a semester-long unit, or can be condensed as time permits. Each section is student graded, which really cuts down on teacher paperwork.

This unit is Common Core aligned but was developed long before Common Core. It has been aligned so it can be implemented in any classroom. The goal of this unit is to turn students on to poetry no matter what standards your school or state uses. If you disagree with Common Core then disregard the alignment, if your state has adopted Common Core then it is aligned so you can use it.

This unit includes:
*Complete lessons with rubrics and student directed scoring guides
*Literary devices/elements of poetry with examples
*Types of poetry with examples and suggestions on poems to read to the class
*Six pattern poems to get students started writing poetry
*The following three poems to analyze

-O Captain! My Captain! By Walt Whitman
-The Highwayman By Alfred Noyes
-Jabberwocky By Lewis Carroll

*A literary devices/elements of poetry and types of poetry test

This unit also encourages teachers to have their students write and illustrate extra favorite poems, in addition to the ones in the unit, to be bound or contained in a poetry book and or folder.
