Poetry is an extremely broad genre of imaginative writing. As teachers, it is sometimes difficult to know where to begin!

  • structure and form
  • rhythm
  • rhyme
  • sound devices
  • figurative language.

A PDF version of the PowerPoint is also available. Teachers may wish to choose specific slides to be used as a classroom display.
