Hyperdoc Lessons

Interactive hyperdocs are one way to provide relevant and engaging poetry instruction for your students whether you are in the classroom or at home!

Click on the name of the poet to access their hyperdoc. It will force you to make a copy, which is then free for you to edit as you wish and share with your students.  I kindly ask that you please give credit to TeachLivingPoets & the creator as noted if sharing beyond your students.
