A Young Scholar's Guide to Poetry from Bright Ideas Press is a full-year poetry curriculum that will help parents and students explore the beautiful world of poetry. Poetry provides many benefits - it opens the doors to cultural literacy, offers a unique way to express emotions, connects us with great authors from the past, and of course offers a window into the poetry and poetic imagery found in the Bible.

Three units are included in this student textbook: Structure, Genre, and Language. Within these units, poetic devices such as internal rhyme, metaphor, ballads, and sonnets are discussed; for each concept, a poet is studied whose work exemplifies that technique. At the end of each unit a "genre wrap-up" reviews all devices learned in the unit and a "poet craft lesson" guides students through using some of the concepts they've learned as they learn to write their own poetry. Students are also encouraged to keep an interactive record of the poems they encounter in the form of either puzzle poem cards or a poetry journal.

This text includes a link and password to access the digital companion guide for this course, where parents will find student review questions for each lesson; each student review set features 10 questions that cover poet biographies and poetic devices. This digital companion also includes student review and lesson exercise answers, coloring pages, timeline templates, game templates, a reproducible lesson text work space, suggested resources, and more.

32 weekly lessons total. Suggested schedule is organized around three-days-per-week. Glossary and list of suggested resources included. 255 pages, hardcover, non-consumable. Grades 4-8.

Civitos Card Game

Look around the table: each player is a country, desperate for leadership. How will you rule?

Civitos is a fun and educational hand-management card game that teaches students about forms of government around the world: democracy, monarchy, theocracy, communism, republic, plutocracy, military, and anarchy. Each form has special features that will help or hinder your goals. The goal of the game is to have the fewest points at the end of the game; you accumulate points from the cards in your hand when players go out.

Flip a card from the draw pile to determine which form of government starts the game. The dealer gets a Leadership card for that government. Players go around and can only play cards matching that style of government—unless the form of government changes through a Government Change card (like Revolution or Civil War) or a card with a matching number. When the form of government is changed, the new leader is selected according to the “Rise to Power” section on the new government’s leader card.

30 minutes. 2-12 players. Ages 10+.

Contains: 12 oversized leadership cards, 228 playing cards, blank do-it-yourself cards
