The Free Verse Writing Unit encourages students to use figurative language, create a conversational tone, experiment with punctuation, play with line and stanza arrangement, use imagery, and make a strong emotional impression when writing poetry.
This unit was written specifically for students in grades 6, 7, 8 but can easily be adapted to younger and older grades. Times can also be adjusted for each introduction, lesson, activity, share and write time to better suit your classroom.
I wish you great success and great writing!
