Product Description

Revised and updated, this popular reproducible book offers a proven approach to teaching poetry to teenagers. Featuring models of the author's own work and that of well-known poets - including Walt Whitman, T.S. Eliot, e.e. cummings, and William Wordsworth - these rich activities introduce students to poetic elements, figures of speech, and language conventions.

As students practice reading poetry, they also learn how to write it. Provocative questions, imaginative propositions, and intriguing situations motivate students and temper their apprehension about writing. Activities encourage them to keep a portfolio or journal where they apply the styles and techniques they have learned. Students often work in groups to discuss the poetry they are studying and to share their own poems with other class members.

Teacher notes offer strategies to help students learn the mechanics of poetry and extend those mechanics into the art of writing. The flexible reproducible format allows you to use the activities as needed in your classroom - for a one-on-one review of specific skills or as a group activity during a broader study of poetic forms.

With the fun, easy-to-use lessons in Your Turn, your students will gain an appreciation of poetic forms and build confidence in their ability to create an artistic piece of writing. Grades 10-12.
