Product Description:

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. Teacher's edition contains teaching instructions as well as completed student pages. ~ Rachel

Ever since we completed a poetry unit in our writing curriculum last year, my daughter has been asking for more. This text will help her to better enjoy reading poetry, and it will help her to write better poetry as well.

I like that this book breaks down poetry step-by-step into it's components. I think it helps them understand poetry better.

I have the teacher key already. literature and poetry will be key in his high school years and although he's been exposed to poetry already, we will be studying it more in depth. This book helps to give the foundation before analyzing it.

On the syllabus of the homeschool resource center we attend.

This is a separate workbook to use along with the Grammar of Poetry set (because I have two students who both will need their own consumable book).

This is a great course. We already have the DVD's, and have used it before. Just need the workbook for this year.
Cynthia S on Jul 26, 2016
I used the older version of this program with our two oldest who are boys. It provided the mechanics of poetry as well as the opportunity for them to write their own poetry with each lesson. My hope was that this program would give them an appreciation and/or understanding of the complexities of poetic literature like The Divine Comedy. <br /><br />Our 16 yo daughter will be using it this year. She is more of the artistic type, so we'll see how does with the mechanical part of the program.

Can this be used on its own as just a workbook or do you need the whole program?
User on Aug 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We used the program last year and the kids enjoyed watching Matt Whitling explain each concept and give examples from his students about how things should be done. As we got farther into the program, we watched only the initial parts of the video because we felt comfortable enough going through the workbook without having to see every single example or without having him show the correct answers when we were all done. If you feel very comfortable with poetry, I think you could use the program without the videos, but I do think for my two, they enjoyed watching him explain. (By the way, he is not a very animated teacher but he does a thorough job explaining the concepts.)
Is the first version with cover picture of a guy on a horse, different from the second version with the balloon?
A shopper on Aug 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Per the publisher: The one with the horse is an older edition, so there are two changes to be aware of: The new edition has perforated pages instead of spiral bound and has complete reformatting of interior and worksheets for better use in the classroom. Content is the same for both editions.
What is the primary difference between The Grammar of Poetry and the Poetry Primer by the same author and publisher? I am looking to use this at a homeschool coop just as a supplement on poetry in a general literature class. I would like the middle school students to learn primarily how to analyze poetry and the literary terms and not as much emphasis to be placed on writing. Which level would be best. I was thinking the Primer seemed more focused on that.
A shopper on Jul 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have the Primer, but never used it. As I recall, it is a truncated version of the Grammar of Poetry. I think that the Primer would be best for Middle School. Have a great year! God's blessings, Dawn

Good overview course
I am not too interested in poetry, but I knew my children needed to learn about it. I really liked this course because it covers all the basics. Most of the work is independent, and the teacher guide makes it easy to check the homework and tests.

Easy to follow and fun
My second child is now going through this program and we have very much enjoyed it. If you can get the Dvds they are a very helpful addition. Not only will your child learn a lot about poetry, but they will also learn how to construct poems themselves. I was very excited to see the poems my daughter crafted with the instructions from this book. The teacher, Matt Whitling is also very conscious of the the fact that a lot of boys might steer away from poetry thinking it too "girly" or "flowery" and he does a great job to make the subject accessible and exciting for everyone. I highly recommend it and will continue to use this program with the rest of my children.
