(7) Poetry Lesson 1 There are so many different visual elements that poets use when they write their poems. Each of the “looks” poet’s use adds a very important meaning to the message of their poems. As we continue to explore more poems, we will get to understand the reasons for these special looks. Distribute copies of Appendix 2 “What Do You See?” and then display two poems from one of the other mentor texts. Have students work in groups or with a partner to list examples on the handout of visual elements they find. Share with class.
