Explore the poetry genre through this two-part literature analysis. Learners focus on four forms of poetry: haiku, acrostic, rhyme, and shape. They learn defining features, make text-to-self connections, and find similar characteristics in song lyrics from Selena Gomez's "Gift of a Friend." Half the class plays a poetry recognition game, while the other half listens to the song.
