Product Description

Poetry, in many ways, defies definition. Poetry asks us to slow down, sit still, and think. Using three short poetry anthologies, this guide examines more than 40 poems and their forms and elements.

In this Intro to Poetry Progeny Press study guide, students will learn about:

  • Types of Poetry: Narrative poems, lyric poems, d ramatic poems.

  • Elements of Poetry: Lines, stanzas, words, sounds, rhymes, slant rhymes, common meter, poetic feet, iambic tetrameter, iambic trimester, and analogies.
  • Forms of Poetry: sonnets, octaves, sestets, couplets, v illanelles, blank verse, haikus, ballads, limericks, free verse, and more.
  • Literary Techniques: denotation, connotation, diction, alliteration, assonance, onomatopoeia, and more.
  • Concepts such as: praying, loving our neighbor, materialism, time, hypocrisy, grace, contentment, authority, and hope.
  • Activities/Writing activities that ask students to conduct research, complete timelines, and write couplets, haikus, limericks, parodies, sonnets, ballads, and free verse.
  • This guide also includes a living reading list of more poetry by the same authors.

    The format is ideal for homeschoolers; the large 8.5x11 printed workbook format is convenient to read, easy on the eyes, and easy to transport from car to home. Plus, every question has plenty of whitespace for student's answers, which encourages neat and clean handwriting practice. A removable answer key is also included for the teacher.

    PLEASE NOTE: the poetry books 100 Best-Loved Poems, 101 Great American Poems, and Great Short Poems are required and must be purchased separately.
