When we started this school year with CSCOPE for the first time, one of the "scary" new changes was that the curriculum was opened the year with a unit on POETRY!!

Poetry, a subject that often immediately strikes fear or dread into the hearts of many, can be fun, and is one website to get started with when planning your poetry unit. has a page specifically for educators containing links for curriculum units and lesson plans, tips for teaching poetry, and a teacher resource area.

Needing to research a poem or poet? There is an advanced search that will allow you to search using keywords, forms or themes. also has a "Poetry map" where you can find featured poets, poems and programs in a specific state. This site also has audio and video recordings of poets reading their own works, proving to students that poetry is still a "living" part of our language today.
