⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sassy Chasy says, “This has been the most comprehensive resource I have come across for my Poetry Unit. ALL of the work is done for you and students are consistently engaged. I used it for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade, and I only modified some vocabulary on a few lessons (i.e. Meter not being taught in 6th, but is in 8th) This resource is AWESOME!”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Kristen says, “Would definitely recommend this resource! The PowerPoints were very thorough and served as a great introduction to the elements of poetry.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Brittany says, “Wow! This resource is extremely thorough. I used this for RTI (intervention) for Tier I to dive deeper into poetry, but various parts could be pulled individually for regular class instruction as well. You definitely get your money’s worth with this one!”
