After hearing different readings of different poems, students write reflections on what the poems mean to them.
Learners analyze photographs and poetry as forms of each other.

Learners write a detailed description of their forms. Students use the EDSITEment website to find other poetry and photography examples for the lesson.
Learners investigate artwork and poetry. In this poetry instructional activity, students view a Mary Cassatt painting and answer observation and analysis questions to help them write poetry and prose about the work. As a follow-up activity, learners go to an art museum and select a piece of art to which they respond emotionally and repeat the classroom exercise to write another original poem.
Students participate in reading various poems in order to complete different activities. In groups, they compare and contrast the writing style and subject matter of two different author's poems. They practice writing poems on different topics to introduce them to all types.
