Are you a fan of Ellen McHenry’s curriculum? If so, you are going to enjoy this brand-new poetry curriculum called Speak Like Rain, suitable for high school and motivated/gifted middle school study, representing a one-semester English elective in a homeschool program (if you do all assigned/suggested writing).
Speak Like Rain is a thorough and enjoyable introduction to poetry. It has both breadth and depth, covering all aspects of poetry. It uses famous poems, as well as student exercises, to teach the fundamental principles of word stress, rhythm patterns, meters, simile, metaphor, symbolism and much more.
There is more to rhyming that you ever dreamed: there are sight rhymes, slant rhymes, visual rhymes, internal rhymes, dactyl rhymes, half-rhymes and end rhymes. Most of us are familiar with iambic pentameter, but what about spondaic hexameter or trochaic dimeter?
You’ll discover hidden symbolism in many poems that give them extra beauty. Poetry examples include everything from nursery rhymes and hip-hop to classic poets such as Eliot, Poe, Yeats, Blake, Frost, Tennyson, Shelley and Shakespeare.
You can provide your student or your co-op class with a top-notch, interactive poetry experience. Everything you need is included.
Save 50% on Speak Like Rain – a high school poetry curriculum.
