Interactive hyperdocs are one way to provide relevant and engaging poetry instruction for your students whether you are in the classroom or at home! All hyperdocs are appropriate for both middle school and high school.
Click on the name of the poet to access their hyperdoc. It will ask you to make a copy, which is then free for you to edit as you wish and share with your students. Teaching poetry has never been easier. I kindly ask that you please give credit to TeachLivingPoets & the creator as noted if sharing beyond your students.

One thought on “Hyperdocs”
Antony, I can see all the images fine– and they load for me without lag. Hoping you get the connection you need– I didn’t know there were all these hyperdocs; I’ve seen some of them via Twitter, but wow! What a treasure trove. Thanks, Melissa (and friends)!
