Product Description
This unit is designed to give students practice in practicing applying elements of poetry and analyzing a poem: "Swift Things are Beautiful" by Elizabeth Coatsworth. I find this a relevant poem for today, one that has a universal and important message, and yet one short enough to analyze and understand within a class period. Its poetic idea is also a simple one that makes a good creative writing opportunity for students.

The unit includes
*A unit explanation
*A copy of the poem
*A set of questions designed to give students practice in analyzing the poem (applying/ identifying elements of poetry, determining author's purpose, and evaluating its achievement)
*Suggested answers to the questions
*A creative writing assignment where students write the same type of poem
*A template to scaffold poetry writing for some students if needed
*A sample student-written poem
*An evaluative writing assignment
*A research writing assignment and/or discussion applying the idea of Yin and Yang philosophy
