Poems for Young People with Lessons for Teaching the Basic Elements of Literature: We highly recommend this approach for teaching literary analysis. Each unit teaches a concept used in writing poetry and begins with an introduction to the concept and suggestions for using it. Several poems along with information about the poet and questions to keep in mind while reading the poems are presented, followed by "Understanding the Poems" with questions for the student, the lesson, ideas and writing exercises for using the concept, and discussions guides. A reference section explains the major steps in the writing process with a handy one-page writing checklist. The book has two-color illustrations, photographs, glossary.

The units are
  • What Is a Poem?
  • Voices in Poetry
  • Sensory Images and Concrete Language
  • Sounds in Poetry
  • Figurative Language
  • Form in Poetry
  • Author's Purpose
There is a teacher's edition available, Best Poems at middle and advanced levels, and other genres in the Best series at the introductory level (See Related Items below).
