Poetry Postcards: Enhanced Lesson, Video, Handouts, Template, Rubric, and Plan

Great for a teacher who just doesn’t have the time to cover a large poetry unit. Especially in an English Language Arts classroom with struggling students who seem uninterested. This might work!

-Youtube Video Clip from the film, 10 Things I Hate About You (student handouts to go with it) film is actually based on Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew!
-group work
-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
-Presentation of the postcard is memorable and easy! Because it is a project that is a personal short poem and a graphic!
