These are some resources that I use when teaching poetry to my middle school students. There is a lesson plan included for suggestions on how to use the material, but you can adapt it any way to fit your classroom's needs.
Included in the unit
This is a literture circles unit that I do with my middle school students. I've included a list of books, quizzes and tests for those books, instructions and handouts for using literature circles, reading schedules, and a lesson plan.
