Lesson Plans for Elementary, Middle, and High School Student

Compiled by Jenny Crakes for the "Exploring our own Amazement: Learning the Language of Poetry" Conference for Educators and Writers held on March 28, 2015 in Snyder-Phillips Hall.

The following lesson plans are adapted from school and community workshops led by RCAH Center for Poetry staff. Multiple online resources, and the creative ideas of Center for Poetry staff and visiting writers, contributed to the development of these plans. We’ve attempted to cite our sources as completely as possible, and welcome your own adaptations of the activities.
