Poetry Comprehension

An ideal supplement to any reading program, these books are full of comprehension activities that are designed to help students understand poems and improve scores on reading standardized tests. Each book contains a two-page assessment that can be used as a pre- or post-test for the book. Then, the book is divided into twenty lessons. Every lesson includes a teacher page that displays the skill being practiced, a summary of the poem, specific directions for introducing the poem, a list of vocabulary words, and ideas for additional writing activities to extend the lesson. Then each lesson includes a poem (many by classic authors) that complements topics taught at each grade level, illustrated for fun. Following the poem is a 7-question assessment. The first six questions are presented in a standardized-test format and test on facts, sequence, context, main idea, conclusion, and inference. A final question then has students write a brief response to a higher-level question. With twenty grade-appropriate poems and similarly formatted lessons in each book, students will definitely be prepared for standardized test questions on poetry. Each book also includes a few extras, like a list of grade-level, poetry specific standards, a glossary of poetry terms, and five graphic organizers to support different activities suggested in various lessons. Answers included, each book 96 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
