Product Description
Ready to inspire your students? This is an amazing 4 week poetry unit. After 20 years of teaching poetry, I have complied the best 14 sessions I have collected from w/shops, professional development, and years of research. The unit is broken into 4 parts (bends). 1) Immersion into Poetry: This bend exposes students to a variety of poems and teaches students a number of different poetic elements. 2) Interpretation of Figurative language. This bend exposes students to a variety of different types of figurative language. Students learn how to write poetry using figurative language and interpret the meaning of figurative language. 3) Interpretation of Poetry. This bend introduces students to the concept of the message behind poems. It does so in a none threatening way by using popular music laced with poetry. Students also learn a system for interpreting poetry (P.O.E.T.R.Y.) 4) Reasons for Writing poetry .This bend exposes students to the doors of poetry. It shows students the reasons we write poetry and its impact on the world. The lessons are VERY creative. Youtube links are attached with some of the sessions to clips from movies or poems. Students are exposed to great poems such as In Flanders’ Field, Invictus, and so many more. There are 14 sessions, but many of the sessions need 2 teaching blocks to complete. The resources are divided into TWO parts. A teaching guide/student resource package (24 pages) and a power point presentation (30+ slides of outstanding demonstrates). The two parts are sold separately (only because I cannot upload both of them at the same time to teacherspayteachers). The resources package gives step by step instructions on how to teach each lesson. However, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT TEACHERS PURCHASE BOTH PACKAGES (word file AND Powerpoint file) AS THE POWERPOINT SLIDES USE A STEP BY STEP APPROACH TO LESSON DEVELOPMENT for the best lesson e.g. extended metaphors. At less than 50cts a session – YOU WILL NOT FIND BETTER RESOURCES FOR TEACHING POETRY. The sessions can be adapted from 3rd-10th grade with absolute ease. Over a 100hrs of teach time has gone into developing these resources. I will be doubling the price of both packages to reflect the quality of this work in 4 weeks. These lessons all fall within the common core requirements RL.2,4,5,6 W1, SL.1, L.5
