Using Creative Dramatics With the Teaching of Poetry

Launch your poetry unit in a very dramatic way. Divide your class into groups, and give each group a different poem. After discussing the poem, each group member selects a stanza to study. The group then develops a skit that represents the ideas in the poem.  Skits are presented to the class and the group leads a short discussion of the poem. An engaging way to encourage young poets to develop an appreciation for poetry, and to engage in the process of creating meaning from poetry.

When plans are needed, and time is short, I begin here for help from my colleagues. The framework of lessons, excellent worksheets, and multimedia presentations has proved extremely helpful.
