About A Young Scholar’s Guide to Poetry

When you look at a poem, what do you see? When you listen to a poem, what do you hear? When you write a poem, what picture do you create? Poetry is the art of carefully selecting and shaping words to paint a picture or create a feeling.

Throughout the history of the world, poets have offered us a moving understanding of humanity.

Why take time to piece together the poetry puzzle?

  • Because the Bible is full of poetry and imagery, learning about poetry helps us understand God’s Word.
  • Working with poetry helps us better understand the English language.
  • Writing poetry offers a unique way to express our thoughts and feelings.
  • Exploring poetry joins us with our past in the aha moment when we recognize a truth that someone else has put to words.

This course provides a close-up look at poets through the ages and provides the opportunity to interact with their work. By exploring a range of poetic techniques & devices, students will be able to both read and create poetry with understanding and meaning.

The authors walk incrementally with young writers through the process of composing their own poetry and encourage their individual creativity.

Includes 32 weekly lessons covering biographies of famous poets and explanations of key poetic devices, easy-to-use timeline and maps, poet info-cards and game directions, poetic device cards, poetry puzzle cards, student reviews, answer keys, coloring pages, poetry reading and resource list, and more.

    This would be beneficial to both my children. I never would have thought of games and maps to learn about famous poets.

  3. I would use this as part of my children’s English curriculum.

  4. Sounds like a great survey of poetry book; something I am not knowledgeable in.

  5. S. Stewart says

    I would read it, and others in my family would read it too!

  6. With the variety of activities, we would enjoy learning about poetry and poets during our learning together time.

  7. Judith Martinez says

    I think this would be a lovely addition to our morning time.

  8. I will give it to missionaries if I win.

  9. It would be great to have some fun activities to go along with teaching my kids poetry.

  10. Rachel Tankersley says

    I’ve never thought about learning poetry helping us understand the Bible. I think that would be a key use.

  11. Elaine Harman says

    What a great way to teach poetry.

  12. I would love to add this into my kids English curriculum.

  13. Lisa Bergmann says

    I have recently become more interested in the value of reading and enjoying poetry, but haven’t been able to find a way to consistently include it in our lessons. This book sounds like a lovely way to do that!

  14. We would use this to supplement our creative writing lessons! We cover poetry but it’s hard for our son to grasp. This might help!

  15. Julie Brown says

    I have a 12 year old daughter that just started expressing interest in poetry. This sounds perfect for her.

  16. We’re working on more tead-alouds and speaking in front of people. Poetry is on my list of what we can add!

  17. Tammy cordery says

    I would love to use this with my son so that we can learn how to learn how to write poetry. What a nice prize. Thank you for the chance.

  18. What a great giveaway prize! As a homeschooling mom, I would use this great tool to help teach my children about poetry, literature and writing.

  19. Angela Williams says

    My children would add this to their homeschool curriculum. Great poetry tool!

  20. Tyna Begley says

    I would love to use this as a history, the timeline would be very helpful.

  21. Stephane Burger says

    Poetry is not an area that gets awarded a great deal of time in our homeschool, my youngest child has poetry included in the curriculum she follows, but her older brother could even benefit from this great source and I would definitely add specific time for poetry.

  22. Wendi Shipe says

    This would be a great addition to the poetry books we already own. I try to read poetry aloud to my kids during our morning time.

  23. We LOVE poetry in our home! This would be great to own. 🙂

  24. We don’t really have any poetry in our curriculum yet, save for reading poems, so this would be an awesome addition!

  25. We don’t have any poetry in our current curriculum (or for future years) with the exception of some poems to read. This would be a wonderful addition!
