This 31 slide presentation on poetry, covers all the basics - from ways to read a poem; ways to analyze a poem to specific figurative language examples to find in poems. It also covers the varities of poems with specific references and examples (ext. metaphor, limerick, ode, sonnet, free verse, to name a few). It has a slide with a specific method utilizing acronyms (not on preview slides) to remember poetry. There is also a worksheet to accompany ppt (entitled poetry quiz to accompany power point - look under my sellers account) that can be used as a quiz or a worksheet the following day. The power point takes about 45 minutes to complete - depending on the level you are teaching. I have used it from English 2, English 2 adv up to English 4, and just omitting the information not relevant to my sophomores - but "graying" the color of the font to demonstrate information students do not have to take notes on. Email me if you have questions.
