Why Lesson Planet?
Combine the study of poetry with the NACC tournament and March Madness? Sure! After a study of narrative poetry (“The Highwayman,” “The Walrus and the Carpenter,” and “Casey at the Bat,” etc.) class members are assigned a team from the NCAA regions and begin gathering data. They then compose a narrative poem about their team following guidelines developed by the class. The richly detailed unit plan includes a materials list, technology resources, activities, and assessments.
