This Writing to a Historical Poet lesson plan also includes:
Poetry is a very personal and introspective art form. Give your class the opportunity to understand how a poet's voice can speak to them on a personal level, and that every reader can respond to an author differently. After a poetic warm-up activity, the kids start writing words and thoughts that describe their feelings, then they choose one poet from a specific list that they feel speaks to them. They compose a formal letter to their poet that explains why they felt the poem made an impact on them.
