Poetry Unit (for senior students)

 

Product Description
Poetry Unit for Senior Students (Bundled)

I love poetry! I love reading it, I love teaching it, and I love the discussions I can have with my students because of it. May students (and some teachers) dislike poetry because they think it’s too difficult. I once had a student tell me that poetry was like a “code” that needed to be unlocked. Cringe!! Some poems are meant to be analyzed. Some poems and meant to sound beautiful, and some poems are meant to be simple and enjoyed for what they are. This unit has a little of all of those things.

Students love this poetry unit. It is a complete unit with no prep required on the teacher’s part. This 2 and a half week unit includes a student guide, 12 detailed lesson plans, two multimedia presentations (no internet connection required), a complete answer key with annotated poems (this is a teacher favorite!) , and an end of the unit evaluation with answer key.

Just print it and teach it. It really is that easy.

This bundle includes individual lessons devised to teach students the importance of:

• Figurative language (its uses and effects)
• How to read poetry
• How to understand and apply symbolism and imagery
• The importance of rhythm
• The importance of tone and attitude in a poem
• Types of poetry
• How to analyze poetry
• How to appreciate poetry (even when you don’t understand it)
• Includes some Canadian poetry

This unit’s focus is the analysis of poetry and teaches students how to make inferences, which is a skill they must learn for their other subjects as well.

Poems include authors such as Emily Dickenson, Dorothy Parker, Maya Angelou, Thomas Gray, Lord Alfred Tennyson, Alfred Noyes, T.S. Eliot, Shakespeare, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Robert Frost, Pearl Jam, Langston Hughes, Margaret Atwood, and Walt Whitman. The Unit includes 21 different poems.

The unit has been conceived to last 15 days – with 65 minute periods (although they are easy to modify).

The unit includes:

1 – The teacher guide (Contains 12 comprehensive lesson plans to teach the poems included in the unit. EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO TEACH THIS UNIT HAS BEEN DONE FOR YOU. )

2 – The student package (Contains students’ notes, poems, and questions) (28 pages)

3 – The answer key includes annotated poems and answers to all student activities, as well as an example of paragraph developing a theme in poetry (saving you time).

4 – Included is a test with multiple choice questions as well as one development question. All answers are included. (Word format for easy changes)

5 – 2 PowerPoint presentations – one multimedia presentation to introduce the unit (17 slides) and the second to reinforce the use of imagery and symbolism (19 slides) – NO INTERNET CONNECTION REQUIRED

A total of 68 pages + 36 slides are included in this package.

This unit is complete and does all of the thinking for you. All you need to do is to print out and photocopy the student package, and you’re set.

Check out these individual lessons from the unit: 
Poetry and Imagery – Langston Hughes
Tone in poetry – Robert Frost

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Analyzing Fiction Activity: Tell Me a Story”

by Connie

6th – 12th Grade

 

 

This FREE activity enables Middle School and High School students to develop both their analytic and creative skills.

First, the students review a list of 12 qualities of Strong Fiction and analyze their personal examples for each of the various criteria. For an activity that focuses on this aspect of writing, check out
Writing: Critique Group Exit Slip

Next, they write examples of Specific Characters, General Objects, Specific Objects, Adjectives, Abstract Nouns and Setting on 3′ x5′ pieces of construction paper color-coded to match the topics.

Finally, they select the basic bones of their story from the cards the class made in the prior segment of this activity and then they write either an individual story or a collaborative piece in groups of three. Whichever writing idea teachers don’t select can be used for another lesson at a later date. This idea will jump-start their thinking Writing: Start Strong!

This Common Core and Bloom’s Taxonomy aligned activity offers students a chance to analyze fiction for specific criteria, and to exhibit how they can combine these criteria with the elements of literature to create a durable story that SHOWS instead of TELLS.

Using a class-created Strong Fiction criteria list, students analyze writing for the qualities they chose as the most important, and then they create their own stories. Students love to tell stories. Let them do this in writing where they can combine their creative ideas with their growing writing and thinking skills.

Get more details about this idea on my blog:http://teachitwrite.blogspot.com/2013/06/tell-me-story.html

Here’s another idea to download that will promote deeper comprehension as well as creative and narrative writing skills –
Writing Activity: Write Right-Great Beginnings!

FREE MISC. LESSON – “Je travaille mon vocabulaire: La salle de classe {French Vocabulary Practice}”

by Ms Joanne

1st – 10th Grade

 

 

Help your beginning French language students develop their vocabulary by playing a matching game, illustrating simple sentences, reading the words in context and making up silly sentences. Use the included illustrated word wall to introduce the new target vocabulary and as a reference tool for students. This resource was developed for Grade 1 French Immersion students but could be used effectively with most beginning French classes. {La description en français se trouve ci-dessous, suivant l’anglais}

This set practices 18 words. Using the materials in this packet, students can practice the target vocabulary in numerous ways:
Play an active matching game that lets them walk around the classroom. Students look for their matching card by asking and answering questions in French using the target vocabulary. Detailed instructions are included.
• Use the matching game cards for a “concentration” game in small groups.
Read sentences using the target vocabulary in context, with an image to use as a picture clue.
• Laminate the 2 pages of context sentences and use them in a reading centre, either for individual reading or in pairs.
• Cut the images from the context sentences and have the students match them up again correctly. 
• Similarly teachers can separate the images from the word wall and have the students match them up again.
Illustrate simple sentences that use the target vocabulary in context.
• Have students orally invent sentences using the target vocabulary and record them on an i-pad or other recording device. If no recording device is available students can take turns in small groups making sentences that use the target vocabulary. Silly sentences, provided they are grammatically correct, are encouraged and can be modeled ahead of time by the teacher.
• Students can listen to the recorded sentences and write down their favorites.
• A copy of the illustrated word wall can be kept by each student to be used as a reference in writing and reading activities as the year continues.

This is a FREE sample from a series of vocabulary practice sets. Other vocabulary practice sets you may be interested in:

Je travaille mon vocabulaire – trousse 1 {French Vocabulary Bundle 1} If you choose to buy this bundle please DO NOT buy any of the above individual sets, as they are ALL included in the bundle.

Also available is a second bundle of 10 sets of slightly more difficult words and sentences which helps students build on their progress Je travaille mon vocabulaire – trousse 2 {French Vocabulary Bundle 2}. This bundle has word sets on body parts, community workers and places, summer sports, winter sports, Christmas as well as 2 adjective sets and 3 verb sets.

Voici un ensemble d’activités pour améliorer le vocabulaire et le niveau de la langue pour vos élèves débutants en français. Cet ensemble comprend un jeu, des phrases simples à illustrer et des phrases à lire avec les mots dans leur contexte. Incluse est une liste illustrée de mots à pratiquer que l’enseignant(e) peut utiliser pour introduire le nouveau vocabulaire et peut aussi servir comme référence pour les élèves. Ces activités ont été développées pour les étudiants de 1re année en programme d’immersion mais peuvent être aussi utilisées avec la plupart des classes de français débutantes.

En utilisant les matériaux trouvés dans cet ensemble de 18 mots les élèves peuvent :

Couper les images des phrases et ensuite demander aux élèves de retrouver la phrase qui correspond avec l’image. 
• Avec la même idée l’enseignant(e) peut couper les images de la liste de mots et demander aux élèves de les remettre avec le bon mot.
Illustrer une phrase simple avec les mots dans leur contexte.
• Demander aux élèves de créer oralement des phrases avec les mots et d’enregistrer leurs phrases sur un i-pad ou autre appareil électronique. S’il n’y a pas d’appareil électronique mettre les élèves en petits groupes et leur demander de créer et partager des phrases. Les phrases un peu bêtes sont encouragées si elles sont grammaticales. L’enseignant(e) peut fournir plusieurs exemplaires avant l’activité.
Écouter les phrases qui ont été enregistrées et demander aux élèves d’écrire leurs préférées.
• Donner à chaque élève une copie de la liste de mots à utiliser pendant l’année scolaire comme référence pour d’autres activités d’écriture et de lecture.

A Good Book Can Start the Year Off Right
By Tracy Willis of Wild Child’s Mossy Oak Musings

My room has a lot of soul. I learned early on in my career that a good book can change my classroom world, create a paradigm shift, and cultivate respect, empathy, imagination and empowerment. I moved around a lot early in my career, so I needed to take those powerful books with me. I never stopped hoarding. Let me tell you about some of my back-to-school teaching treasures.

Tried & True Picture Books to Begin the Year
By Kathie Yonemura of Tried & True Teaching Tools

You’re never too old to be read to and who doesn’t love a good picture book? I always begin the school year reading picture books to my class, rather than jumping right into a novel. (And I continue to read them throughout the year!) There are so many great themes in pictures books, as well as starting points for meaningful discussion.

Read Aloud Books for the Beginning of the Year in Middle School

By Deann Marin of Socrates Lantern

As Teachers, we want our students to step over stumbling blocks, and not be intimidated by obstacles that stand in their way. We want them to realize that they can do anything they set their minds to. Characters in novels can help them overcome these challenges head on, and develop strategies to alleviate them. The books I’ve chosen to share with you are humorous, thought provoking, and great for 6th graders.

A Gift from the Sea to Start Your Year
By Retta London of Rainbow City Learning

Maybe you have already started your school year, or maybe you are about to start. There are so many wonderful picture books to get your students off to a great start: Enemy PieEach Kindness, and of course First Day Jitters! The best ones, I think, speak to us about how we treat each other and the everyday choices we make.

Poetry Unit : The Art of Interpretation No Prep

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Poetry-Unit-The-Art-of-Interpretation-No-Prep-1238103

 

Poetry Unit : The Art of Interpretation No Prep

 

Product Description

Poetry: The Art of Interpretation – is designed to teach students how to interpret, appreciate, and analyze poetry.

There are nine complete lessons (estimated to last approximately 60 minutes), therefore two weeks of lessons.

This complete, no prep unit is a great way to start! This unit includes a student guide, nine detailed lesson plans, two multimedia presentations (no internet connection required), a detailed answer key with annotated poems and answers, and an end of the unit evaluation with a rubric, and answer key.

Just print it and teach it.

Poetry is a very subjective form of art. Some poems you love and others, you hate. What we need to realize is that this is the beauty of poetry. Poetry is not a mystery to be solved. Rather, it is the masterful manipulation of language that has the power to transform the ordinary and to immerse its reader into the world created by the author.

This unit incorporates art to help students understand and appreciate the beauty of words. Also, students will learn how to analyze themes in poetry through paintings and artwork.

This bundle includes:

Each lesson focuses on a different skill set including:
– Knowledge and manipulation of figurative and poetic language
– How to read and understand (appreciate) poetry
– How to analyze poetry
– How to annotate poetry
– How to paraphrase effectively
– How to use symbols
– How to effectively develop themes from poetry
– Creative writing
– Creative activities to learn how to analyze

The unit includes a student packet (20 pages), a teacher packet (with nine complete lessons), and a comprehensive answer key with annotations to the poem (with 17 pages). See the preview for more details.

Poets studied include: (8 poems total)
– Billy Collins – “Introduction to Poetry”
– Anne Marriott – “As You Come in”
– Phyllis Gotlieb – “First Person Demonstrative”
– Edgar Allan Poe – The Raven
– Robert Frost – “Nothing Gold Can Stay.”
– John Crowe Ransom -“Janet Waking”
– Woodruff – “I am a Poem that Tells a Lie.”
– Tennyson – “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”

The unit also includes: 

1 – The teacher guide (Contains nine comprehensive lesson plans to teach the poems included in the unit. EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO TEACH THIS UNIT HAS BEEN DONE FOR YOU. )

2 – The student package (Contains students’ notes, poems, and questions) (20 pages)

3 – The answer key includes annotated poems and answers to all student activities (saving you time – 18 pages).

4 – Included is a test with multiple choice questions as well as a development question. All answers are included. (Word format for easy changes)

5 – 2 PowerPoint presentations – one multimedia presentation to introduce the unit (17 slides) and the second to reinforce the use of imagery and symbolism (19 slides) – NO INTERNET CONNECTION REQUIRED

6 – Images to project or print

7- An end of the unit creative evaluation, which includes clear and concise directions and rubric. (In a Word document for easy modifications)

– An interactive multimedia Jeopardy game to review figurative language and poetic devices (PowerPoint – no internet required)

– A multimedia PowerPoint on how to read and interpret poetry

– A PowerPoint presentation on how to understand symbols and imagery in literature (19 slides)

– A final culminating evaluation with evaluation rubric (left in Word format for easily made modifications)

The unit has been created in such a way as to simplify the teacher’s life. Photocopy the three packages included and don’t worry about it for the rest of the unit. You literally can begin teaching it without any other preparation.

A total of 43 pages + 64 slides are included in this package.

This unit is complete and does all of the thinking for you. All you need to do is to print out and photocopy the student package, and you’re set.
