LESSON 8

  • POETIC FORM:
    • Quatrain
  • POETIC DEVICES:
    • Rhyme Scheme
    • Couplets
  • POWERPOINT SKILLS:
    • Animation
  • TIME REQUIRED:
    • 100 minutes
  • MATERIALS:
    • Quatrain Poems PPT
    • Slips of paper with words for Rhyming Game
    • Large slips of paper (1/student at least)
    • Masking Tape
    • Rhyme Scheme Check-in Activity PPT
  • Activities:
    • Introduce the “Purple Cow” quatrain poem . (PPT)
      • Ask students how many lines are in the poem. Define a quatrain.
      • Ask students what they notice about the poem
      • Which words seem to match? Why? What is that called?
      • Define rhyme and rhyme scheme
      • What is the rhyme scheme of this poem? How would you describe it? (ABAB)
      • Highlight the pattern by changing the color of the words that rhyme
    • Look at the second quatrain – “Mud Turtles.” (PPT)
      • Repeat same questions as above.
      • Different rhyme scheme (AABB), highlight with different colors
      • Define couplets
      • Explain that there is a new letter for each new rhyme in a poem
    • Rhyming practice
      • Ask students to stand up. Say the word “ball.” Each student must think of a word that rhymes to remain standing. If the student can’t think of a word, or if the word does not rhyme, then he/she sits down. If no one in the room can think of a rhyming word (including the teacher) then the student may remain in the game and the teacher begins with a new word.
      • You may want to prepare a few slips of paper with words that have lots of rhyming options, and that have a variety of vowel sounds and syllables. (i.e. hand, funny, school)
    • Class couplets
      • Give each student one piece of 4”x11” paper
      • In pairs, students write 1 set of couplets about an agreed upon topic (i.e. pizza, Asia, winter, video games). They should write one line on each piece of paper – printed, large, clear
      • Collect the sheets and tape them to the board to create one long poem of quatrains. Ask a student to read the poem aloud. Ask the class what the rhyme scheme of the long poem is. Write it at the end of each piece of paper.
      • Ask a different student to rearrange the pieces of paper to make two quatrains.

      • Students give verbal commands to animate the second quatrain slide.
    • Independent writing of a quatrain.
    • In pairs students come to the computer and do a quick rhyme scheme activity. (see next slide)

      • After the teacher checks the work, either the student or the teacher can reset the slide to its default (all text black, clear answer box) before the next group comes up to the computer.

Lesson Overview:

This lesson does not present any new poetry content. It is meant to be a work session for students to write independently (perhaps with 1-on-1 teacher help), offer and receive feedback from peers and work in the computer lab on their slides. One new PowerPoint feature is presented.
