In this set of lesson plans, I provide you with a 9 day plan (which you can feel free to truncate or extend) to help students develop an original poem from free-writes, focusing on descriptions, point of view, main ideas, and theme. There are revision and editing lessons to help students shape their poem and reinforce ideas.
The lessons are complete, providing the following elements: rationale, CCSS (New York), Teaching point, Connections, Essential Questions, Teach Component, Active Engagement, Link, Independent/Group Practice, Differentiation, Assessment, and Sharing.
Lessons are are designed to meet a 45 min class period (but can be adjusted as you see fit).
In PDF format. Please purchase the WORD format if you would like a version to edit.
