WHAT TEACHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS RESOURCE
♥ Great for detail and thorough, easy-to-understand explanations. I am weakest at poetry so this is great for my own review and improving my poetry units.
♥ Awesome resource! Thanks!
♥ Thank you for a helpful lesson on a difficult topic.
♥ The visual appeal is stunning. Well laid-out slides are easy to read and follow a consistent format across slides. The information is incredibly thorough and builds in complexity. I love that you blend the names of feet and meter as you move through the slides. I ask my 8th graders to be able to identify several times of feet in combination with types of meter at the end of our poetry unit, and your slides support the accurate nomenclature for students to use. LOVE it.
