Young Scholar's Guide to Poetry
Through a broad selection of ancient, classical, Biblical and modern poetry, this guide introduces this symbolic world as appealing, accessible and understandable to anyone. Each poetic device is taught by highlighting a unique poem and its poet. Activities like timelines, puzzles, games, and poetry journals reinforce learning. At each unit's end, students review all previous concepts and then practice the devices learned. Unit 1 teaches structure and rhyme scheme (including various rhymed lines, shaped, villanelle, free verse, and sonnets). Unit 2 covers epic, ode, ballad, pastoral devotional, narrative, and 3 types of humorous poems. Unit 3 teaches anaphora, refrain, rhyme, consonance, alliteration, onomatopoeia, symbolism, personification, apostrophe, metaphor and simile. The free digital Companion Guide on the publisher's website includes reproducible student reviews, coloring pages, game templates and a lesson text work space (rather than writing in the text), and the text answer key. 8 ½”x 11 ¼”. 255 pgs, hc.
