Intermediate Poetry is intended for use in 7th grade through high school. Intermediate Poetry builds on the foundation laid in Poetry for Beginners. We focus on Romantic and Victorian poets such as Shelley, Byron, Wordworth, Tennyson, and Stevenson. Old English alliterative poetry, particularly Beowulf, is studied extensively, and we also offer snippets from Gilbert and Sullivan, Longfellow, Shakespeare, and Tolkien. Abstract thinking skills are required, and the models we use are more appropriate for older students. Intermediate Poetry contains six units, each of which takes from 2 to 6 weeks to complete. In all, the book contains 16 weeks of instruction. Intermediate Poetry is a non-consumable book containing one semester’s worth of writing instruction and work. The layout of the text is linear: start in Unit 1 at Lesson 1 and work straight through the book to Unit 6’s final lesson. The students may cover the material simply by working through the lessons in sequence. We strongly recommend that the majority of our teachers and students should use the consumable Student Guides. The material in our intermediate and advanced books is challenging, and is best encountered with the strong organizational foundation that the Student Guide provide: weekly schedules with check lists, coordinating lessons, and reading for each unit. The Student Guide includes copies of the models, charts and tables for analysis and imitation, as well as space for most of the diagramming work. Finally, the Student Guide has an extensive Answer Key which you will find invaluable as a time and stress saver!
