Poetry, in many ways, defies definition. Poetry asks us to slow down, sit still, and think. Using three short poetry anthologies, this guide examines more than 40 poems and their forms and elements. As students read and study each poem, they will conduct research, complete timelines, and write couplets, haikus, limericks, parodies, sonnets, ballads, and free verse. A reading list is included that provides recommendations of additional poems by the authors that are studied. The format is ideal for homeschoolers: the large 8.5x11 printed workbook format is convenient to read, easy on the eyes, and easy to transport from car to home. Plus, every question has plenty of whitespace for student's answers, which encourages neat and clean handwriting practice. A removable answer key is also included for the teacher. Grades 8-12.
