This eight-section unit written for Years 8-9 (ages 13-15) focuses explicitly on poetic techniques and elements of poetry. It can be taught as a complete unit over a term, or in sections complementing a wider study of rhetorical and poetic devices.


The unit comprises sections on rhyme and rhythm, personification, imagery, epithet, theme (cats and men; modern life); symbolism, and form (acrostic poetry). Each section can be bought separately.


Each section includes:

  • one page-explanation of the device or technique
  • at least two poems for easy differentiation
  • writing tasks for each poem following Bloom's Taxonomy of lower- to higher-order questions


And there's a free summative assessment in short answers format!
