Category Description for Grammar of Poetry:

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

My 8th grader has an interest in poetry, and after watching the sample lessons or the DVD set, I decided this would be a great curriculum for her.

This program looks like it provides a solid basis for understanding, enjoying and writing poetry. My 14 y/o is a strong writer already and is interested. :)

This product was recommended to me by an author who said poetry helps students pay more attention to the words they choose to write with.

I will be using this set with my 8th and 10th graders, who haven't studied poetry formally. They will watch the videos and complete the workbooks independent of Mom's help!

I used Grammar of Poetry with my oldest daughter several years ago, before the DVD was available. We greatly enjoyed the program, but I'm looking forward to having my younger children benefit even more from direct instruction from the author.

Loved it!
Two of my kids worked through this program (6th and 8th grade). They already enjoyed poetry and had written some on their own previously (but not a lot). I was impressed with how much they learned about scansion and types of poetry, and they really enjoyed it!

I think the DVD drags at times, especially if you also have the Teacher's Edition. The TE is definitely required, but I would put the DVD in the optional category -- definitely helpful at times, but at other times it was like reading through the TE. About 1/3 of the way through the lessons, I started watching the DVD in advance and making a decision to either have the kids watch it, or just fill them in on what they needed to know.

Overall, I would highly recommend the course for middle school to high school aged students!

Love this program
While this set is somewhat expensive, it is worth it for the knowledge my child is gaining. Clearly explains many figures of speech, poetry rhythm and rhyme and has the kids create their own work in several styles. The video sessions are a bit long, but interesting. We are doing this over a (long) semester in middle school, but it could be used as a year-long program.
