dc.description.abstract Students are usually quite intimidated by poetry. Yet they are very comfortable with popular music. My project is a unit which incorporates both music and classical poetry. By showing that music is only poetry set to a melody, I have created a unit that conveys the value of poetry while introducing students to classical poetry in a non-threatening manner. Through careful examination of the elements of poetry and listening to both recordings of poetry set to music and reading poetry, students will learn that poetry is not as frightening as it may initially seem. They will also learn to write their own poetry. In addition, I have also included my own works of poetry which have been set to music as part of the unit for examples of poetry written by someone my students will know personally.
