teaching literary elements through poetry

Teaching Literary Elements.jpg

Boost students' reading skills through poetry-based lessons and engaging activities presented by poet and teacher Paul Janeczko. Students will gain a solid understanding of key literary elements, including:
• character
• setting
• theme
• plot
• metaphor
• simile
• and more!

This knowledge will help students readily identify these elements not only in poetry but in all types of literature, allowing them to have a deeper comprehension of what they read. Each lesson includes background information, tips for reading the poem aloud, an opportunity for writing, reproducible activity sheets, and more. By completing the lessons in this book, students will also meet the Common Core State Standards that address literary elements and the genre of poetry!
