Product Description
This is a ten day unit that I have used many times at the beginning of the year in my sixth grade classroom and it has always been a favorite of students, parents, and teachers alike as a "get to know you" activity. While it is formatted to be a three part lesson over the course of ten days that includes close reading, literary analysis, and the writing process, it could easily be shortened or extended. By the end of the unit, students will have completed a close read, analyzed literary techniques, and produced and presented their own original poem.

What is included:

- Ten Day Lesson Outline with Tips and Tricks for extending or shortening the unit
- Student Copy of Poem with space for guided and individual annotation
- Teacher Completed Notes
- Close Reading Guide with targeted activities for each read
- Literary Analysis Prompt and Template to guide students in writing an analysis of the poet's literary techniques
- What Makes Me, Me Pre-writing activity to help students think about what their child has been like before writing their own poem
- A poem template to help students structure their own version of the poem
- A modified template for students with modification requirements
- A detailed but flexible rubric with feedback checklist to make grading and giving specific feedback quick and easy
