-Student handouts on poetic devices /literary terms and fill in chart, Shakespearean sonnets, Sonnet 141, Kat’s Poem (from the film clip), rhyme patterns, iambic pentameter
-Poetry Postcards template, rubric, and example
-Lesson plan includes pre-activity, instructions, and ideas on more video clips to hook your students

One of her most distinctive traits is her very thick Colombian accent. **Well known for her many mispronunciations, using idioms, and common English language phrases incorrectly.**
