Product Description:

For all you poetry lovers out there, here is a great collection of short poems for your enjoyment. While these 138 poems are short in length (around sixteen lines or less), their beauty and power is long and withstanding. Enjoy poems by Robert Frost, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Shakespeare, Dylan Thomas, William Butler Yeats, and many other well known poets.

This study guide from Progeny Press, though tackling a slightly different topic, is just as well done. The format is much the same, although it requires three books to use (all of which we offer very inexpensively and are listed below for your convenience). The study guide begins with an introduction to poetry and its historical background. The first part of the book offers a short lesson in types of poetry, and the remaining two parts offer several lessons each. The second part focuses on elements of poetry, and the lessons deal specifically with lines, words, sounds, rhyme, imagery, tone, and other specific poetic elements. The last part in the book looks at designated forms of poetry such as the sonnet, blank verse, ballad, limerick, free verse, etc. The lessons in these two parts both begin with some information in the guide, and then the student is direct to read a poem or two per lesson and answer questions about them. As with Progeny's other guides, these challenge students to think critically about the selections. Scripture based questions are also tied into the themes in "deeper thinking" questions. 84 pgs. - Mel

For a homeschool co-op class

I am using this with IEW's Narnia series because my students in a 2 day/ week co-op need a bit more reading. It goes well with the theme and allows me to add short reading assignments when other workload is light.
