I remember studying poetry some in middle school, but even more in-depth in high school. However, not having used what I learned in years, I’ve forgotten most of it. I remember some of the different types, but when I started doing research on what my oldest needed to learn, I saw many more types than I remember!

If you’re just starting to learn about poetry, definitions and the different types is a great place to start. And rather than write out the different styles and their characteristics, I will refer you to this post on Young Writers that gives a description of each one.

This Winter Themed Poetry Copywork pack is perfect for Middle and High Schoolers. This pack includes 18 different poems with both manscript lines and plain lines for copywork, for a total of 163 pages. ::

Poetry is not to be read the same as a novel or short story, therefore, here are some tips and strategies to help.

Survey the poem and see the way it is laid out on the page, stanzas, number of lines and the punctuation used throughout, especially at the end of lines.

Read the poem aloud several times. This is especially important for younger children just learning and being introduced to poetry. When learning to read poetry it can be difficult to hear the rhyming and rhythm, so reading aloud will help.

Have them to visualize the poem as it is read. They can listen for strong verbs and comparisons in the poem to help them see what the author is trying to convey. Much like reading a novel, poems will paint a picture if you listen to the words.

Define any new words or unfamiliar phrases. Just like when reading a novel, new words and unfamiliar phrases need to be identified and clarified. Listen for those that are repeated, as they may be important to the meaning of the poem. Students can use a dictionary, thesaurus or clues from the context.

Find the theme of the poem by asking questions about the message or idea the poet is trying to deliver. Maybe they are trying to explain something in a new and different way? Maybe it relates to your life or the state of a country at the time?
