Product Description:

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 Staff's 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
