Canon Press Grammar of Poetry, Updated Edition

Students will gain a better understanding of the fundamentals of poetry, from scansion and rhyme to simile and synecdoche with this updated edition of Grammar of Poetry. Students will become active participants as they learn the craft of writing poems, how to use a rhyming dictionary, how great writers use figures of speech, ten powerful tropes, and even when to break the rules.

Short lessons focus on one element of poetry through examples from classic works, and are followed by practice exercises and activities. Riddles and reviews are also incorporated throughout, with new concepts or terms defined in sidebar boxes. 171 non-reproducible pages, softcover.

This is a one-semester course designed for grades 6-9.

I had been looking for a long time for a teaching manual to give me some ideas on how to teach poetry to middle school students. I came across this teaching manual and absolutely love it. My kids have learned more about poetry in 1 lesson than I have taught all year with out it. Thanks!
