Poetry Unit

Introduction: Poetry Grades 3-8

Poetry is one of many genre studies that might take place throughout the school year. Here we present one possible poetry unit, though there are many ways you might wish to vary the unit to address the specific needs and talents of the students in your classroom.

Included in this module you will find video resources, sample lesson plans, sample mini-lessons and other handouts that will support you in teaching a poetry unit. These resources can support you in thinking about your own teaching, but they aren’t a one size fits all plan for the classroom.

Attached below is an outline of one possible poetry unit. You are encouraged to read it, perhaps even noting your immediate questions, before continuing to the next page in this module.
