PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Poetry Writing Unit provides students with a deep understanding of the poetry genre as they read and write poetry. In the eleven-day unit, students write ten different types of poetry. (That means that there’s plenty of opportunities to excel at writing.) They’ll study figurative language, elements of poetry, and learn how to write a poem. The individual poetry lessons and step-by-step writing guides help students to write traditional and modern poems. In addition to writing extensively, students will study the genre, its vocabulary, and read and discuss more than 40 poems. This unit develops students’ understanding of poetry and increases their confidence as readers and writers. The best part is that the engaging poetry lessons will turn your most reluctant writers into poetry enthusiasts!
