An Integrated Poetry Unit
My students have always disliked poetry. The different ways in which this lesson approaches poetry and the connection it makes to their "March Madness" studies seems to make poetry more enjoyable, fun, and relevant for my students. In order to integrate with the sixth grade math and Social Sciences teachers, I teach this unit during the ACC tournament to coincide with the "March Madness" unit that is covered in the math classes.
