Poetry can be used as a foundation unit that teaches students how to use language effectively to communicate ideas. Poetic language can help express ideas in non-fiction and fiction writing. This unit was created for students in a gifted upper elementary class but could be used through middle school. Students explore poetry by annotating and then writing their own poems. The final project is a digital poem that is peer reviewed.
