This unit is genre-specific. That means your students will be asked to produce
poetry pieces. Students will create a collection of poems that can be organized to build an anthology. Students will be taught how to create shape poems, freeform, and acrostic poems. They will be given strategies for getting inspiration for poems during this unit. Students will use imagery, tone, sensory, and descriptive words. Expect (and encourage) students to create lots of poems because they will be asked to organize and categorize them into an anthology at the end of the unit.
