How does one teach poetry in any subject or quantity? The folks at Lesson Planet have assembled a fine range of helpful lesson plans that include discussions of haiku, poetic analysis, and utilizing poems to understand history and other subjects. Visitors will be glad to learn that there are over 6,400 lesson plans searchable by Resource Type, Grade, and User Rating among other categories. A highlight of the site is "Poetry Beyond Words" which asks young writers to compose a "popcorn poem" using sensing verbs and adverbs. There is a tremendous amount of information for those who love poetry as well as educating others using it as a tool.
