Your feedback is important to us!
After viewing our curriculum units, please take a few minutes to help us understand how the units, which were created by public school teachers, may be useful to others.
There are two types of objectives within this unit. Some of the objectives are specifically related to the skills I wish the students to acquire in their study of poetry. That is, identifying and using analogies/similes to express their thoughts, identifying themes in poems and relating them to a specific era, and also, establishing the social moods of an era and then selecting poems belonging to that era. The other set of objectives is concerned with the general skills that special education students and other students as well need to develop and apply. These skills include following directions, completing assignments and working more independently. poetry will be the means for achieving these basic skills.
