Poetry Unit for Senior Students (Bundled) – Editable in Word

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 week unit includes a student guide, 12 detailed lesson plans, a multimedia presentation (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

❒ 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)

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 Dickinson, Dorothy Parker, Thomas Gray, Lord Alfred Tennyson, Alfred Noyes, T.S. Eliot, Shakespeare, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Robert Frost, and Walt Whitman.

The unit has been conceived to last 12 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 – A multimedia PowerPoint presentation to introduce the unit (17 slides) – NO INTERNET CONNECTION REQUIRED

A total of 68 pages + 17 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.

FREE MATH LESSON – “Math IS Real Life January FREEBIE – snow removal multi-step word problem”

by MissMathDork
5th – 7th Grade

What exactly is MATH IS REAL LIFE?

Math IS Real Life is a monthly blog link-up hosted by a math loving dork! The purpose of #MIRL is to bring examples of how I (and others who link up) have used math in OUR real lives in the last month. The hosted link-up is the first Wednesday of each month and often have other friends and math bloggers join in the fun!

You can check out our Pinterest boards HERE to read archived posts, grab real-world ideas/ pictures and even some freebies to use in your classroom.

This particular freebie goes along with the January 2014 edition of Math IS Real Life that will be live on 1/1/2014. Make sure to check out the link-up . . . feel free to join in too!

This freebie includes a real life snow-removal scenario in which students will calculate the area of a driveway and the volume of the snow removed in the month of December 2013 based on actual snow fall. A bonus question has been added to include a more complex calculation. In addition to the bonus question, the teacher also has the option to have the student calculate the problem in inches (easier, whole number calculations) or feet (more complex, decimal or fraction calculations). Make sure to check out the blog post for real pictures to use in your classroom as well a more guided walk through of the problem.

Like what you see? Leave me feedback! I am constantly looking to improve my items! Feel free to let me know how I can do that?

Thank you so much for support!
Mathematically yours,
