A Young Scholar's Guide to Poetry from Bright Ideas Press is a full-year poetry curriculum that will help parents and students explore the beautiful world of poetry. Poetry provides many benefits - it opens the doors to cultural literacy, offers a unique way to express emotions, connects us with great authors from the past, and of course offers a window into the poetry and poetic imagery found in the Bible.
Three units are included in this student textbook: Structure, Genre, and Language. Within these units, poetic devices such as internal rhyme, metaphor, ballads, and sonnets are discussed; for each concept, a poet is studied whose work exemplifies that technique. At the end of each unit a 'genre wrap-up' reviews all devices learned in the unit and a 'poet craft lesson' guides students through using some of the concepts they've learned as they learn to write their own poetry. Students are also encouraged to keep an interactive record of the poems they encounter in the form of either puzzle poem cards or a poetry journal.
This text includes a link and password to access the digital companion guide for this course, where parents will find student review questions for each lesson; each student review set features 10 questions that cover poet biographies and poetic devices. This digital companion also includes student review and lesson exercise answers, coloring pages, timeline templates, game templates, a reproducible lesson text work space, suggested resources, and more.
32 weekly lessons total. Suggested schedule is organized around three-days-per-week. Glossary and list of suggested resources included. 255 pages, hardcover, non-consumable. Grades 9-12.
