    An excellent resource, this book teaches students to write poetry by studying the forms and styles of great writers such as Shakespeare, Scott, Tennyson, and Longfellow. Students then complete a number of practice activities which reinforce the concepts learned.

    The student workbook contains 30 lessons. It is recommended that three lessons be covered each week. Each lesson takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.

    As the teacher you will likely want to read through the new concepts at the top of the page with your student. Concepts covered in this volume include: simile, rhyme, how to use a rhyming dictionary, metaphor, meter, pun, iamb, personification, trochee, synecdoche, anapest, hyperbole, dactyl, onomatopoeia, alliteration, rhetorical question, refrain, oxymoron, spacial poetry, and euphemism. The student will then work through the activity. After every few lessons, review questions are given to insure that the concepts are retained and to provide additional practice of previously-covered information. Upon the completion of this program, the student should have mastered several figures of speech called tropes. A cumulative test is also included. Teachers edition contains teaching instructions as well as completed student pages. ~ Rachel

    This inexpensive book contains eighteen lessons that teach students to become better poets. Each three to five page lesson covers a different topic such as rhyme, rhythm, topic, grammar, word choice, alliteration, or religious poetry. The lessons begin by presenting several short poems that contain elements of the topics covered in the lesson. The poems are followed by a lesson, which explains and analyzes the poetry topics. Next are exercises for students to practice their own poetry-writing skills. The exercises vary in length and complexity; some are fill-in-the-blank type exercises that involve completing the lines of a poem while others require students to write their own poems based upon concepts taught in the lessons. The poems used throughout the book are taken from Rod and Staffs Poems for Memorization, so many of them have religious themes. For additional motivation, the end of each lesson features examples of poems written by actual students. Several review exercises give students the opportunity to tie together multiple poetry concepts. Answers included. 80 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    The Imitation in Writing series is designed to teach aspiring writers the art and discipline of crafting delightful prose. This Poetry Primer was created to provide introductory level instruction and practice before the student begins The Grammar of Poetry by the same author, Matt Whitling.

    Starting with a lesson designed to debunk the notion that poetry is only flowery snippets that appeal to girls, the student is challenged to take the time to investigate what poetry really is and to determine to enjoy it. To make this challenge more palatable, a poetic quote from Master Samwise of Lord of the Rings fame is given. Poetry is defined as a language of pictures and music. To illustrate the diversity of poetic language, riddles are scattered throughout the student pages.

    Remarkably thorough but not overwhelming for an introductory book, the seventeen lessons include such poetic devices as simile, rhyme, metaphor, personification, and inclusion, combined with a more lengthy look at meter particularly iamb and trochee. Lessons are varied, including both analysis and original composition. I would expect the lessons to take about 30 to 45 minutes to complete. It could be used either as a quarters study (two lessons per week) or over the course of a semester (one lesson per week). A final exam is provided.

    The Teacher Edition contains exact copies of the student book with answers. Annoyingly, the page numbers between the two books do not correspond. The Student Book also includes an anthology of poetry designed to capture the interest of even the most reluctant poetry student. Although no instructions are given for the use of the selections from this anthology, it wouldnt take much planning or creativity to incorporate its use as part of this study or as continuing exposure to poetry selections. ~ Janice

    For a more in-depth course in poetic appreciation and understanding, turn to these units which contain and analyze some of the best poetry from the late Middle Ages through the 19th (Classical) or early 20th (Traditional) century. The poems used are printed right in the loose-leaf text and include works from such notable authors as William Shakespeare, John Keats, Christopher Marlowe, John Donne, John Milton, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, and others. Both units begin with a study of The Ballad, though more attention is given to this form in the Traditional Poetry unit, which also contains a Nursery Rhymes section. The basic organization of Classical Poetry is by Age (Elizabethan, Seventeenth Century, Restoration and Eighteenth Century, Romantic, Victorian, and Nineteenth Century) with a discussion about that era and the style of poetry characterizing it. Biographical information about each poet is included, along with a blackline portrait. After the first two units in Traditional Poetry, that book is organized by poet and also includes biographical information and a portrait for each. Activities follow the poetry. These range from interpretational to a study of poetic devices and are very well-contrived, with ample explanation and background information. Concluding each unit are activities for essay and discussion centering around themes in the poems or asking students to compare or contrast aspects of two or more of the poems. These are excellent units; my only quibble is the lack of a teacher key to evaluate student responses. If you do this study along with your child, this shouldnt be much of a deterrent.

    Did you know that everyone has poet potential? We just need to tap into the freedom that comes from writing down our thoughts, memories, and feelings. Of course, there are a few things we can do to give shape and structure to our poems. This book is a self-instructional introduction to poetry for an older child or adult, but it could be used well with younger children with adult supervision. It defines 14 poetic elements in easy-to-understand terms. Building step-by-step, this book begins with metaphors and similes, then moves on to skills such as personification, imagery, alliteration, onomatopoeia, repetition, rhyme, meter, tone, synesthesia, and symbolism. Each term has a chapter dedicated to them. The term is clearly defined and then illustrated by many poems (written by the authors former students) which provide ample examples (a little rhyme there). Then the chapter includes worksheets, exercises, and writing suggestions to get those creative juices flowing as your children practice the skills in their own poetry. The author, Shelley Tucker, has clearly written this book in such a way that beginning poets can easily understand and apply the principles to their writing. The exercises and concepts are also relevant to experienced poets who want to improve their poetry. Poetry - taught in a way that unleashes the poet inside! 144 pages, pb. - Jess

    This book by Michael Driscoll introduces young students to poetry and famous poets in a way they will find interesting and fun. The first part of the book describes the various types of poetry like nursery rhymes, villanelle, limerick, narrative verse, ballad, sonnet, free verse, and more. Each type of poem is described quickly and clearly, and then the book contains famous examples of that type of poem. Kids can either read the poems themselves, or play the accompanying CD when prompted. The audio CD includes all the poems in the book read alternately by a man and a woman with pleasant voices. Colorful boxes tell readers when to play a track on the CD, as well as sharing extra information about the poems or their authors. Words for the Wise boxes are included on each page, defining words in the poems that children may not be familiar with. If Youre a Poet, You Should Know It boxes are also included throughout the book, with vocabulary words related to poetry defined (like stanza, alliteration, etc.). After all the types of poetry are introduced, explained, and exampled, the second half of the book is dedicated to famous poets. A quick biography of each poet is included and then excerpts from that persons poetry are shared. These excerpts (sometimes full poems) are also included on the CD. Text boxes on the pages give a summary of the poems and explain confusing parts. Fun, colorful, little drawings accompany these poems (as well as those earlier in the book) and add to the charm of the book. Homer, Shakespeare, Blake, Dickinson, Kipling, Sandburg, Heaney, Angelou, and many more are included in this section of the book. Overall, 64 famous poems are included in the book (and on the CD). With the easy-to-understand explanations and numerous examples, young students will be grasping and enjoying poetry in no time. Book includes a listing of all 64 tracks on the CD and measures 10.25 x 10.25. 96 pages, hc. ~ Rachel

    This book walks the student through 41 step-by-step lessons which first introduce them to a type of poetry, and then guide them through the writing process so they can create their own verses. Each lesson fits nicely on a two-page spread, where the specific poem type is explained through definition and example, and a reproducible student page on the right where they work through steps to write their own. For example, in the lesson on haiku, they learn about haiku poetry, read through the given suggestions and tips on how to write their own, think about possible topics, write several phrases or words related to the topic, and then work at arranging them to fit the 5-7-5 haiku pattern. The bottom of the page features blank lines for writing their finished poetry, with plenty of blank space for illustrations or borders. The format and content of these lessons make it easy for students to work on their own, and the lessons are designed to be completed fairly quickly. Some poetry types covered in the lessons are: couplets, onomatopoeia, cinquain, ballad, metaphor, diamonte, I wish poetry, ABC poetry, limericks, question, recipe, tongue twister, trouble, people, simile, and much more. Suggestions on how to collect and share poetry are included, as well as a bibliography and step-by-step bookbinding techniques - in case you really get into poetry-writing! - Jess

    This is a beautifully illustrated book of poetry edited by poet Michael Rosen, the Childrens Laureate of Britain. The book features 38 very well-known poets and several poems for each, presented in chronological order spanning the years from 1564 (Williams Shakespeares birth) to 2000 (Judith Wrights death). The table of contents shows a picture of each poet, along with the lifespan dates, plus the particular poems covered with the page reference. As a result of the chronological order, the table of contents doubles as a timeline of sorts. Other poets include William Blake, William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Emily Bronte, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Lewis Carroll, Robert Louis Stevenson, Carl Sandburg, and more. The text includes a very brief biographical note about each poet. A few of the poems have explanatory notes at the back, but only a few. The illustrations truly are beautiful, and I especially appreciate the fact that there is a portrait of each poet. This book would make a great resource for a poetry study or a nice volume for browsing. 160 pgs, pb ~ Caryl
