Poetry Lessons

Discover the magic of poetry with these engaging and educational lessons. Learn the basics, explore different styles, and unleash your creativity with our comprehensive poetry lessons.
If you are an English teacher like myself, you are well aware that one of the most important celebrations in the literary world is coming soon- National Poetry Month!

Poetry reveals many aspects of life that they may not get to experience or witness first hand. Poetry may speak some ‘truth’ about how others live and that helps build empathy with our students.

Analyzing poetry is a skill all our students need to develop. While students are required to investigate poems often, poetry analysis is still something that many students struggle with.
