Poetry for Northern Learners: English 120 (2011)

This curriculum unit is part of a series developed for use in adult literacy and basic education programs.

The authors note that teaching poetry at the English 120 level presents many of the same challenges as it does at the 110 level, but the task is a little easier because learners at this level are more independent readers and writers.

The unit contains four poetry studies, each anchored by one main poem that highlights one technique or characteristic. Those techniques include simile; comparison and contrast between poetry and prose; onomatopoeia; and rhythm.

The poems and songs were chosen for their northern content and appropriate reading level.
