Smithsonian In Your Classroom: The Music in Poetry

Take poetry off the page and put it into terms of movement, physical space and, finally, music with this series of three lessons from the Smithsonian Institution. This resource introduces students to two poetic forms that originated as forms of song, Ballad and Blues, as well as several poetic devices such as iamb, measure, and rhythm. Your class will read several examples of both forms of poetry and learn about the history behind their origin. Great extension activities are included as well.
