Heartsongs Poetry by Mattie Stepanek

Use Mattie Stepanek’s Heartsongs book of poetry to inspire young poets to write about their own lives, experiences, and feelings. After reading the introduction to Mattie’s book, in which he talks about himself and his reasons for writing poetry, class members make predictions about the topics they might find in Heartsongs. Then learners examine the master poem and compose their own poems about family, feelings, and struggles.

When I first started teaching, coming up with activities and lesson plans was nerve racking. Soon, the activities became boring year after year. Lesson Planet has helped me create lessons and activities that keeps students actively engaged. Thanks Lesson Planet.
