"Poetry, It's elemental, my dears." With this unit, Poetry Analysis Activity: Poetry on Parade, I use this play on the famous quote by Sherlock Holmes to show my middle and high school students that poetry is ever-present in their lives through the music they pipe into their ears.
In this lesson plan, students will
1. Analyze songs of their choice
2. Review some of the elements of poetry
3. Analyze and then teach a poem
4. Write an original poem
Take a test on poetic elements.
